The Dr. Robert Stanger Young Artist Concerto Audition for the 2021-22 season will be conducted by the Elmhurst Symphony Association in cooperation with the Elmhurst Kiwanis Club on Saturday, February 13, 2021, at Elmhurst Christian Reformed Church, 149 W. Brush Hill Rd. in Elmhurst. The yearly Stanger Audition provides an opportunity for outstanding high school orchestral instrumentalists and pianists to grow as musicians, gain recognition for their efforts preparing for the Audition, and compete for the opportunity to perform a concerto movement with the Elmhurst Symphony Orchestra. The winner of this event will appear as a soloist with the ESO during its 2021-22 subscription season and will also receive a monetary award of $400. Three runners-up receive monetary awards and are invited to perform for local community groups.
Applications for the Stanger Audition must be postmarked by December 30, 2020; the application fee is $40. Each entrant will be given 10 minutes to perform a selection, and performances will be evaluated by three judges who will provide written comments and suggestions.
