The Friends of Music Concerto & Aria Competition is open to students of Washington University in St. Louis. As the competition will be virtual this season due to COVID-19 health and wellness protocols, the students will submit unedited videos of their performances to be judged by professional musicians in St. Louis. The winner will perform with the Washington University Symphony Orchestra in the 21-22 season and will receive a Friends of Music $500 merit award.  Join us for this Facebook premiere comprised of a compilation of the submissions and an announcement of the winner.
