2018 YCA First Prize Winner, VC Young Artist Jonathan Swensen

Applications Open for New York’s 2021 YCA International Auditions

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

Open to international instrumentalists between the ages of 16 and 28, 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 DC Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts.

Founded in 1961 by Susan Wadsworth, The Young Concert Artists International Auditions differ from a competition, 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 KavafianEmanuel Ax, and Murray Perahia — and VC Artists Paul HuangBella HristovaBenjamin BeilmanRay ChenStephen WartsZlatomir Fung, Edgar Moreau, Xavier Foley, SooBeen 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.
