We are pleased to announce that HUDSON RAGINS is our Young Artists Festival Concerto Competition winner for 2019.  He will play the third movement of Beethoven’s Piano Concerto in C Major, No. 1 with the Norwalk Symphony Orchestra at our March 17th “Music for all Ages” concert.  Hudson is shown above with Rebecca Christopherson, Young Artists Festival chair, and Christopher Bell, NSO Board President.

The Norwalk Symphony offers this unique program for young musicians, and we added many new features in 2019. Most notably, we opened the Junior and Senior competition levels to pianists! You will find the Young Artists Festival brochure for 2019 here, and the Young Artists Festival Concerto Competition brochure here. These are provided as samples, and specific details for 2020's event will be available in Summer 2019. Also, we have worksheets available to help students prepare for the theory test in the Festival level.
