Syracuse Friends of Chamber Music is pleased to resume its annual Youth Chamber Music Competition for the 14th year. The primary purpose of this competition is to encourage students in the Central New York area to discover the joy of preparing chamber music for performance under the guidance of a coach.

All participating ensembles will perform before two judges and will receive written evaluations. The students in one or two of the ensembles will be selected to receive prize money, and one group may be selected to perform at the beginning of our April 2nd concert before the featured professional ensemble. There is no entry fee for this competition.
