Join us for a thrilling concert sure to throw off winter's chill!

The Samuel Fordis Young Artists Concerto Competition, one of our most popular programs each year, features the top competition winners in solo performance with the orchestra.  The first and by far the largest of its kind in the South, our competition draws more than 40 musicians ages 9-24 competing for the opportunity to solo with the Georgia Philharmonic.  We bring you the cream of the crop performing amazing solos with the accompaniment of the full orchestra.

This year, we have 5 outstanding violinists chosen as performance laureates.  On the program will be Bruch's Scottish Fantasy, Lalo's Symphonie Espagnole, Paganini's Violin Concerto No. 2, Sibelius' Violin Concerto, and Vieuxtemps' Violin Concerto No. 5.  Also on the program will be Wagner’s Overture to Rienzi.

Without a doubt, this is one not to miss!
