2020-2021 Borchardt Concerto Competition
The 2020 Competition was scheduled for September 13, 2020, however, in light of the current public health crisis, we will be postponing the competition to December or January. Should full orchestra/large ensembles be safe to resume in January 2021, we will schedule the concerto winner(s) performance(s) at the Teen Arts Concert (February 2021) and the Season Finale Concert (May 2021).
Each year CKYO sponsors a competition for member musicians. The competition is open to all CKYO students who were members in good standing the previous year (2019-2020) and who have not previously won the Borchardt Concerto Competition, though mostly Symphony Orchestra members participate. Students will receive detailed comments from a panel of judges, and up to three winners will have the opportunity to perform solo with one of our orchestras during 2020-2021 Spring Season.
