Thank you to all the excellent young musicians who submitted videos in Phase 1 -
and thank you to all the teachers and parents supporting
these very talented young people behind the scenes.

The Final Competition will be held:
Saturday, February 12
1:00 - 5:00 pm
Christ Lutheran Church Sanctuary - 4519 Providence Road

Depending on the current COVID omicron variant outbreak, attendance may be restricted.
We will follow all facility protocols that are in place. More information to follow - we will
remain flexible to reschedule or conduct the competition virtually as circumstances dictate.

And, to all of you (who are not seniors this year!),
we look forward to your participation for the 2023 Competition.
Look for details and application information in late spring.
