AYSP’s annual Castro Concerto Competition for current high school juniors will take place this Sunday, May 22, 2022 at 4:00 pm in the recital hall at Robertson and Sons Violin Shop. The performances are free and open to the public.
This year, four outstanding student musicians will be competing for the privilege of performing a concerto solo with the Youth Symphony during the 2022-2023 season: Lilly Porter, violin; Cal Brock, bassoon; Elijah Lopez, cello; and Willow Stracuzzi, cello. We invite you to join us for a sunny Sunday afternoon of beautiful solo music, followed by a reception honoring our outstanding student musicians!
