The Genesee Symphony Orchestra is excited about sponsoring its 14th annual Young Artist Competition, which will be open to all music students, vocal and instrumental in Grades 8 -11. The Orchestra is hoping to provide the opportunity for a high school-age student to perform with the Genesee Symphony Orchestra in its 2023-2024 concert season.
