Nico Snel Young Artist Competitions deadline is Dec. 14

The 33rd-annual Nico Snel Young Artist Competitions are set for 9 a.m. Saturday, Jan. 19, at Holy Trinity Lutheran Church, 301 E. Lopez Ave., Port Angeles.

Application deadline is Dec. 14; a non-refundable registration fee of $20 is charged.

Competitors are to perform a selection of classical music of concert quality. This selection need not be a concerto and performances should not exceed 10 minutes. Competitors are expected to announce their selections, say the full name of composer and the year the composition was written. Competitors must provide their own piano accompanist for the competition (only piano accompaniment is permitted).

Results are announced after the competition.

Cash awards for the 33rd Young Artist Competition are: first place, $500; second place, $250, and third place, $200. Awards for the 13th Junior Young Artist Competition are: first place, $250; second place, $125, and third place, $75. Awards are made possible in part by the generosity of individual donors and by the Board of Directors of the Port Angeles Symphony.

Entry forms are available at the Port Angeles Symphony Office, 216 N. Laurel St. #C, Port Angeles.
