Finalists Announced at New York’s Young Concert Artists International Auditions

Open to international instrumentalists aged 16 and 26, the 2020 winners will join the Young Concert Artists roster, granting access to a minimum of 3 years management services, career engagements, publicity and career guidance

The 2020 Young Concert Artists International Auditions finalists are:

  • Flutist, Devan Jacquez
  • Mezzo-soprano, Megan Moore

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 – with each candidate competing against a standard of excellence, not each other.

The 2020 jury comprises: Daniel Kellogg,  Alessio Bax, J'Nai Bridges, Eugene Drucker, Wolfram Koessel, Tara Helen O'Connor, Rossen Milanov, Orli Shaham, Weston Sprott, Michael Stern, Howard Watkins and Susan Wadsworth.

Previous recipients include: Pinchas Zukerman, Ida Kavafian, Chee-Yun, Emanuel Ax, Murray Perahia and Anne Akiko Meyers – and VC Artists Paul Huang, Bella Hristova, Benjamin Beilman, Ray Chen, Stephen Warts, Zlatomir Fung, Edgar Moreau, Xavier Foley, SooBeen Lee and Risa Hokamura.

The Final round of auditions, to be held on the 8th of November, will be streamed live on The Violin Channel.
