2018 YCA First Prize Winner, VC Young Artist Jonathan Swensen

Applications Closing for 2021 Young Concert Artists International Auditions

Open to international instrumentalists between the ages of 16 and 28, applications are to be received by August 2, 2021

 

The 2021 Young Concert Artists International Auditions will be held in New York City from October 25-31, 2021.

The 2021 winners will join the Young Concert Artists roster — granting access to a minimum of three years of management services, career engagements, publicity, and career guidance plus coveted recital debuts in New York City and at the Washington D.C. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts.

Founded in 1961 by Susan Wadsworth, The Young Concert Artists International Auditions differ from other competitions, as there are no rankings, and any number of winners can be selected. Each candidate competes against a standard of excellence, not each other.

Previous recipients include Pinchas ZukermanIda Kavafian, Anne Akiko Meyers, Emanuel Ax, and Murray Perahia — and VC Artists Paul Huang, Ray ChenStephen WartsZlatomir Fung, Xavier FoleySooBeen Lee, and Jonathan Swensen.

“I cannot think of another organization that is more nurturing and sensitive to the birth of one’s performing career as Young Concert Artists,” said 1986 first prize winner, violinist Anne Akiko Meyers.

“I owe everything to YCA,” 2011 first prize winner, VC Artist Paul Huang said.

Applications are to be received by August 2, 2021.
