First, second and third places were awarded cash and the first place winner will give a special performance at the CVYS Finale Concert on May 20. This year’s Concerto Competition winners are:
--First place: Angie Coyle of Eau Claire, alto saxophone.
--Second Place: Levi Wehrman of Hudson, violin.
--Third Place: Jordan Stokka of Eau Claire, piano.
Six finalists performed in front of a panel of three judges, competing for the top three spots. The judges were UW-Eau Claire music professors Dr. Melissa Koprowski, Dr. Owen Lovell and Dr. Tulio Rondon. Student musicians from the youth symphony qualified for the finals based on a music recording they submitted in December. During the preliminary round of competition, a three judge panel selected the top six finalists.
The youth symphony is a full string and wind orchestra comprised of seventh- through 12th-grade musicians who play at an advanced level. The orchestra plays under the direction of Dr. Peter Haberman. Students are provided the rewarding and challenging experience of playing alongside other dedicated and serious musicians.
