YTA MUSIC COMPETITION PRELIMINARIES

New this year–all gala supporters will be invited to attend the daytime Competition Preliminaries,
(Thursday, March 7 and Friday March 8), plus a private reception.

OUR MOST GRATEFUL APPRECIATION

YOUNG TEXAS ARTISTS (YTA) is a one-of-a-kind non-profit presenter
of music competitions and events, career development programs
and cultural enrichment outreach. We educate, inspire and
build audiences for classical music and the other fine arts.


YTA has been inspiring excellence in Texas since 1983.

YOUNG TEXAS ARTISTS has helped to launch careers of more than 3,000 classical musicians in Texas and enriches the quality of life in our communities. A cultural jewel of Montgomery County, YTA is nationally and internationally recognized and has received official designation by the State of Texas. These achievements are made possible by our truly exceptional donors and volunteers.

Emerging Texas artists have seen dreams come true. YTA alumni include a Grammy winner and two nominees, leading singers at the Metropolitan Opera, a silver medalist in the famed Van Cliburn International Piano Competition, and others performing
or teaching at major orchestras, opera companies, conservatories and institutions throughout the world.

Two cornerstones of YTA are the acclaimed Young Texas Artists Music Competition and the career Development Program. They provide important professional guidance, including valued critiques from esteemed Competition judges, and performance opportunities vital to progress and jobs.

An Official Music Competition of the State of Texas, the YTA contest is unique. It is open to classical artists, ages 18-32, who are Texas residents or affiliated with a Texas music school. It is also the only competition in Texas with four divisions: Voice; Piano; Strings; and Orchestral Instruments. Judges are distinguished professionals from leading orchestras, operas, and music conservatories.

OUR MISSION IS TO ENCOURAGE EXCELLENCE
IN YOUNG TEXAS MUSICIANS, INSPIRE THEIR AUDIENCES
AND ENRICH THE CULTURAL LIFE OF OUR STATE.

YOUNG TEXAS ARTISTS is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization founded and headquartered in Conroe, Montgomery County, Texas.
