Ensemble 212 is pleased to announce our 2013-14 Annual Young Artist Competition for instrumentalists and vocalists. The instrumental competition is open to piano, strings, woodwinds, and brass.

Two overall winners of the competition (one instrumental and one vocal) will perform with Ensemble 212 at our Season Finale & Annual Young Artist Showcase concert at Merkin Concert Hall - Kaufman Music Center on Saturday May 31, 2014.

The Grand Prize winner of the 2013-14 Annual Young Artist Competition in the instrumental category is 16 year old violinist Alice Ivy-Pemberton. No Grand Prize winner was selected for the vocal category and therefore the 2nd Prize alternate in the instrumental category, 15 year old cellist Derrek Louie will perform in place of the vocalist. Congratulations to all the participants!

Objective: To showcase outstanding young instrumentalists and vocalists from the greater New York metropolitan area by providing opportunities to perform as a soloist with a professional orchestra.
