ARIZONA MUSICFEST YOUTH PERFORMANCE PROGRAMS
For the last 28 years, Arizona Musicfest has provided unique music education programs and youth performance opportunities to children, schools and audiences throughout the Valley and beyond.
Through the organization’s highly regarded Young Musicians Competitions, each year Arizona Musicfest identifies top classical music talent through juried competitions, and subsequently provides many of these extraordinary young musicians with valuable public performance opportunities. These performances allow the musicians to hone their performance skills, while they provide audiences with a special opportunity to experience virtuosity from the start.

Past participants in the Arizona Musicfest young musician competitions, have gone on to attend the prestigious Juilliard School, the Curtis Institute of Music, Eastman School of Music and many other distinguished conservatories and collegiate music programs. Additionally, these young artists have been featured performing on NPR’s nationally syndicated radio program, From The Top, as well as locally through KBAQ broadcasts of the annual Arizona Musicfest finals competition. Arizona Musicfest’s young musicians have been featured as soloists with the Phoenix Symphony and with many other professional ensembles, and have also been presented in recital programs throughout the country, including at the Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts.
In our continued partnership with the Musical Instrument Museum, during the 2017-2018 season, Arizona Musicfest will produce a series of three Young Musicians Concerts at the MIM Music Theater in Phoenix.
