About Forte’s annual Young Artist Auditions

Forte’s 2016 Young Artist Auditions were held on Saturday, February 20. These auditions were open to all Wisconsin high school string, woodwind, brass, and percussion musicians. The top three winners had the honor of appearing as soloists with the MSO at the Audrey G. Baird Stars of Tomorrow Concert on the evening of Thursday May 12, 2016 at the Helene Zelazo Center for the Performing Arts.

Audition slots are limited and will be granted on a first-come, first served basis as applications are received. Additional information about 2017 Young Artist Auditions will be available in late fall of 2016.

In addition to the honor of performing as a soloist with the Milwaukee Symphony, winners are eligible to receive up to $2,000 in scholarships. Finalists and honorable mentions will be given the opportunity to play side-by-side with Milwaukee Symphony Orchestra musicians.
