Young Soloists – Iceland Symphony Orchestra

This event has passed

The annual young soloists’ competition gives outstanding students the opportunity to perform a concerto or sing a selection of vocal music with the Iceland Symphony Orchestra — an invaluable experience for any classical musician.

The Iceland Symphony sponsors the competition in cooperation with the Iceland University of the Arts. It is open to university-level students, irrespective of which school they attend. This concert is eagerly anticipated every year, and the atmosphere at the concert is nothing short of magical.
