Youth Concerto

The annual Clear Lake Symphony Youth Concerto Competition was started over thirty years ago at the suggestion of area piano teacher, Lorraine Merrill.   The Competition is limited to contestants in the Houston/Galveston Metro area & designed to enhance performance before a live audience accompanied by a symphony orchestra.  Students are judged in junior and senior divisions to provide maximum opportunity for students of various ages and advancements. Past winners of the Competition have been accepted at Julliard, The Eastman School of Music, Curtis Institute, and other high quality music conservatories. In addition to providing an opportunity to perform with the Clear Lake Symphony, the orchestra assists these young musicians with scholarship awards.
