Each year the Winston-Salem Symphony conducts a talent search to identify gifted and accomplished young musicians. Maestro Peter Perret, conductor emeritus of the Winston-Salem Symphony, established the competition as a means of helping to develop young talent, and as a way of recognizing and supporting the teachers and families of musically gifted students.
First, second, and third place winners will be named from each age group. First place winners will be invited to perform with the Winston-Salem Symphony on the upcoming Concert for Community on Saturday, February 3, 2018 in Wait Chapel on the campus of Wake Forest University. (No ties will be awarded; Judges reserve the right to not award any prizes)
