Concerto Competition

Harlan Duenow Young Artist Concerto Competition and Scholarship

We seek to discover and encourage emerging young musical talent. Each spring, the Fayetteville Symphony Orchestra awards, through a competitive process, a $2,000 cash scholarship to a talented classical musician. The scholarship is named in honor of the orchestra’s longest serving conductor, the late Harlan Duenow. Applicants must be between the ages of 12 and 21, and a full-time legal resident of North Carolina or a military family member stationed in North Carolina.

 

The Concerto Competition will be taking a one-year break while the FSO searches for a new Music Director. Please check back for information on how to apply for the 2017-2018 year in Fall 2017.
