Applications for the 2020 SPCO Youth Chamber Music Competition are NOW OPEN.
Follow these three steps to apply to the YCMC:
Read the competition guidelines.
Download and fill out the application and repertoire information forms before beginning your application online.
Send forms and a video recording of your group’s performance to getacceptd.com/spco no later than Monday, February 10.
This year, the video round judging will be handled online only, so for the first time, we have reached beyond the Twin Cities for judges. Our three video round judges have extensive experience in both music performance and teaching: Violinist Min-Jeong Koh is an associate professor of music at the University of Oklahoma School of Music; cellist Laura Thielke is the director of chamber music at Walnut Hill School for the Arts in Massachusetts; and Immanuel Davis has been the flute professor at the University of Minnesota since 2001.
We’re looking forward to hearing ensembles from Minnesota and neighboring states (Iowa, North Dakota, South Dakota, and Wisconsin).
On your mark … get set … and get going on your application!
