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.
