Friday Woodmere Music Club Young Artists Competition
The Friday Woodmere Music Club is a non-profit organization made up
of classical instrumentalist and vocalists.. Some are currently
performing with major orchestras, opera companies, ensembles and as
soloists and teachers.
We have enjoyed a fine reputation for many
years and are proud of our contribution to the musical community. One of
the endeavors of which we are most proud of is our sponsorship of a
bi-annual Young Artists Competition. We recognize the need to encourage
young classical musicians who are in pursuit of a serious musical career
by giving them an opportunity to be auditioned by distinguished judges.
In addition to awarding cash prizes to winners, we have, as in the past,
arranged for our 1st prize winners to appear on Robert Sherman's WQXR
McGraw Hill Young Artist Showcase.
