Tune-Up with Your North Carolina Symphony

In July, NCS Associate Principal Cello Elizabeth Beilman joined student cellists online for a free virtual workshop and shared notes on technique to help prepare for North Carolina’s Senior Region Orchestra auditions and give live feedback.

Our Education Department provided digital sheet music for a selection from Vivaldi’s Sonata in B-flat Major, RV 47, along with a video recording of Ms. Beilman performing the music for study and supplemental exercises for practice.

Youth Concerto Competition

The North Carolina Symphony’s Kathleen Price and Joseph M. Bryan Youth Concerto Competition is North Carolina’s premier performance competition for young instrumentalists. The competition fosters the most promising musical talents in our state; winners have gone on to enter some of the world’s most prestigious music schools and perform with other acclaimed music organizations across the country.

The competition is open to candidates ages 10 to 21 and is divided into junior and senior divisions. A panel of NCS musicians adjudicates preliminary and final rounds in Raleigh. The first- and second-prize winners in each division receive cash awards, with the first-prize senior division winner also earning the opportunity to perform in a future concert with the North Carolina Symphony.
