BRATTLEBORO—The Brattleboro Music Center announces the Windham Orchestra’s 32nd annual Concerto Competition, open to serious instrumental and vocal music students in grades 9 through 12.
Eligible students must live in or attend schools in the Vermont counties of Windsor, Windham, or Bennington; New Hampshire counties of Cheshire, Sullivan or Grafton; or Massachusetts counties of Berkshire, Franklin, or Hampshire.
The winner will receive $200 and perform with the Windham Orchestra under the direction of conductor Hugh Keelan.
“This is an opportunity for students as competitors, and their musical circle — family, friends, teachers — to have a ‘milestone’ experience, and achieve a new level of exposure for their talent and growth,” Keelan said in a news release. “I encourage students to join us, and they can rest assured we are very supportive and friendly!”
