Discover Classical’s 11th Annual Young Talent Search

August 9, 2019 | 7:00PM

Since 2009, Dayton Public Radio/Discover Classical 88.1 & 89.9FM has conducted its Annual Young Talent Search, a celebration of outstanding young classical musicians in the region. The contest is open to all classical musicians and vocalists under the age of 18 in the Miami Valley region. Through a blind audition, a panel of local judges selects a group of young artists to receive a prize package including a cash honorarium, on-air interviews, and the chance to perform at a free public concert. Over the last ten years, the station has honored almost 60 talented young musicians who have gone on to perform on some the world’s biggest stages, including Carnegie Hall and the Kennedy Center in Washington D.C.
