As major cuts continue to impact music and art curriculums in our schools, protecting these programs are of paramount importance. Assuring that our students are able to engage in their passion for the arts, grow musically and develop their “musical identity” is one of our missions.

In an effort to develop a community outreach program that not only addresses this issue but also supports high school students continuing their choral music studies in college, The Choral Society of the Palm Beaches began the Young Artist Vocal Competition in 2014.

The Young Artist Vocal Competition is an annual event that recognizes high school seniors attending school in Palm Beach County for exceptional choral ability. Through the Memorial Scholarship Fund, prizes are awarded for excellence, musicality and professionalism. Winners of the competition receive media recognition and are featured guest soloists in our April concert.

Enter the Competition

Those eligible must be planning to pursue a college major or minor in vocal performance, music education, or musical theater with voice as their principal instrument.
