Student Programs

Concert Overview

Developing Young Listeners and Performers:


Thank you for helping us bring over 60 students to our 2018 Festivals through our Scholarship Ticket Program. Young music students were able to attend our performances, many who wouldn’t have been able to otherwise.

We are excited to be launching our sixth-annual Young Artist Awards Competition in partnership with Classical KING FM 98.1! All young musicians in Washington State from ages 6 to 20 are encouraged to send in a five-minute video entry for consideration. SCMS will be awarding a special prize: the Monika Meyer Clowes Memorial Award – a chance to perform with and be coached by Festival musicians during our Summer Festival. Plus, the top 10 finalists get to perform live on the radio!
