VSA International Young Soloists Competition

Calling all musicians with disabilities, ages 14-25! Each year outstanding young musicians from around the world receive the VSA International Young Soloists Award, $2,000, and the opportunity to perform at the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts in Washington, D.C. This program is open to U.S. and international soloists and ensembles/bands of any genre or instrument, including voice.
A panel of music professionals selects multiple winners, who will receive a trip to the Kennedy Center for professional development and music coaching prior to their performance.
We suggest the following guidelines for musical submissions:
" Video files are suggested but not required. It is not necessary to have your video or audio professionally recorded, but the audio quality should be high.
" Each uploaded file should be a recording of one piece only (multiple movements for a piece are fine).
" Each recording should be 10 minutes or less in length.
" Selected pieces should represent your current musicianship and repertoire. Recordings should be relatively recent (no more than 1-2 years old).
