The orchestra would like to announce the following results for the 5th annual 2020 Young Artist Competition. Judges awarded a Grand Prize, Second Place, and Third Place awards. Scoring was exceptionally competitive, and each winner and many other competitors demonstrated outstanding preparation and the musical maturity needed to perform as a soloist. Thank you to all performers who participated. We enjoyed each of your performances and applauded your hard work and diligent preparation.
Although the orchestra’s goal with this competition is to showcase these outstanding young soloists in concert, the state of live performance remains uncertain for the near future. The orchestra will continue to monitor public health and safety guidelines, and we eagerly await our return to the stage when we can do so safely. The HRP will be in touch with winners about possible future performing opportunities but cannot commit to any programming decisions at this time.
Eden Crumbly, Bruch Violin Concerto
Kearston Gonzales, Mozart Violin Concerto in G
Tyler Hyun, Hindemith “Der Schwanendreher” Concerto for Viola

About the Competition

Decided by an adjudicated competition, the winner will perform with the Hampton Roads Philharmonic as a featured soloist in March’s annual Young Artist Competition Showcase performance.
