The 22nd Annual Hellam Young Artists’ Competition will be held on Saturday, March 3, 2018. The Competition is open to musicians 18-26 years of age who are currently enrolled in undergraduate studies in colleges and universities or in music conservatories. It was founded by and is directed and underwritten by Dr. Duane and Judy Hellam. Its purpose is to provide a valid professional evaluation of performance art by young virtuosi in a competitive setting. In addition, private conferences and discussions with jurors are available to any and all competitors at their request following performances. Competitions such as this, held in many venues nationally, provide important elements of the Curricula vitae of these young virtuosi. The efforts of the Competition are sustained by contributions from underwriters, business sponsors, host families and volunteers.
Performances are Free and Open to the Public
