In its fourth year and slated for yet another highly successful and sold-out performance, this bracketed, NCAA-basketball tournament style competition brings original string quartet compositions head-to-head in front of a live, participatory audience. It's like March Madness for the ears! Submissions are being accepted from around the world until December 1, 2017. Tickets will become available in December 2017.

The Young Composer Concert invites Austin-area youth ages 12-18 to compose original pieces of music with the guidance of a professional mentor and as part of a collective production team. A professional ensemble then performs student pieces, with the participant work reaching new audiences - such as those listening to KMFA and KUTX. For 2018, we are collaborating with the Austin Symphony and 250 other artists to celebrate the great Leonard Bernstein through Bernstein 100 Austin. More information coming soon!
