2017 Competition Results

Hampton Roads Philharmonic

Young Artist Competition

2017 Winners

The orchestra would like to announce results to its 2nd Annual Young Artist Competition. Many factors were considered in the decision including age, appropriateness of repertoire, programming concerns for the orchestra, and skill of performer. This year, judges chose to award two Grand Prize winners in order to showcase the outstanding performances of both competitors.

Placements are as follows:

Grand Prize Winners – Kendall and Kearston Gonzales
Runner Up – Mary High
Honorable Mention – Maggie Jordan

Adjudication forms with judge scores, scoring explanation, and comments will be scanned and emailed to competitors and their teachers over the coming week.

Thank you to all competitors, teachers, accompanists, staff, judges, and volunteers for your support. The HRP is dedicated to promoting the local performing arts, and our goal moving forward is to continue to build a valuable, high-quality competition that will serve our community for years to come.

The HRP’s 2018 Young Artist Competition will be November 4th at the American Theatre. Additional details and registration information will be posted online when available. We hope to see you next year as we continue to foster quality local classical music.
