2017 New York Music Competition

The New York Music Competition for Young Artists invites talented young musicians skilled in piano, violin, or cello to display their musical talent. This event provides musicians the opportunity to discover their musical potential and work towards their future career plans.

First and second place winners perform at the 268-seat Weill Recital Hall at Carnegie Hall, an intimate space that is renown worldwide as a premiere concert venue presenting more than 180 concerts each year.

Over the past 19 years, over 1,761 children and youth ages 5-18 have participated in this event. As a result of the training, experience, and recruitment of talent, a total of 701 winners have made or are making their careers in music. Proud to be a sponsor for young talents, the YWCA of Queens Music Committee continues to work hard to increase the level of success and talent in the competition year after year and intends to gather more support from sponsors throughout the community.
