Young Concert Artists has announced the winners of the 2021 YCA Susan Wadsworth International Auditions. Winners include tenor Daniel McGrew, violinist Lun Li, as well as pianists Harmony Zhu and Norfolk aluma Ying Li (NCMF ’18).

Each year Young Concert Artists chooses a new group of young musicians to add to its roster. Competition winners receive debuts in both New York City and Washington, D.C. followed by at least three years of career management.  They also receive performance opportunities, promotional and marketing services, travel arrangements, educational residency experience, and extensive professional development. 

Since its founding in 1961 by Susan Wadsworth, YCA has presented nearly 300 artist debut concerts, has commissioned more than 30 compositions from YCA composers, and has facilitated thousands of residencies through the Annaliese Soros Educational Residency Program.
