woolsey_sp1

The Yale School of Music presents the annual Woolsey Hall Concerto Competition, which will take place on Saturday, March 28, 2009 from 9 am to 5 pm, in Sprague Memorial Hall (corner of College and Wall Street). The different departments of the School of Music – from piano to winds and brass, from strings to percussion –  select a total of 15-20 finalists to compete for the privilege of performing as a soloist with the Yale Philharmonia in the 2009-10 season. Two to three winners will be selected by the panel of judges.

The competition, despite its name, takes place in Sprague Hall; the winners’ performances with the Philharmonia next season will take place in Woolsey Hall.

The competition is free and open to the public, and with participants from all disciplines, the competition’s program promises to be varied and interesting. For more information, visit the Yale School of Music website, music.yale.edu, or call 203 432-4158.
