The 26th Young Artist Competition - Strings


Congratulations to our First Prize winner, Angela Wee!

The Final Round of the 26th Long Island Philharmonic Young Artist Competition was held on Wednesday, March 26, 2014 at the Atrium at Tilles Center for the Performing Arts, Greenvale. Violinist Angela Wee, an 11th grader at Syosset High School, won First Prize. Second Prize went to violinist Annalisa Welinder, a 7th grader at Port Jefferson Middle School; third prize to cellist Solomon Choi, a junior at Elwood-John H. Glenn High School.

The Long Island Philharmonic’s Young Artist Competition, an integral part of the Orchestra’s commitment to Arts-In-Education, alternately focuses on instruments in one of three disciplines: Piano, Strings, or Woodwinds & Brass. The competition offers aspiring young Long Island musicians an opportunity to achieve the recognition of their peers, the public, and the distinguished panel of judges.

Angela made her debut performance with the Long Island Philharmonic at their Annual Gala at Oheka Castle on April 23, 2014.
