At the Mondavi Center Young Artists National Competition, we are proud to support young artists in the early stages of their careers, providing scholarships to support their musical studies as well as valuable performance opportunities to encourage their artistic growth. The Robert and Margrit Mondavi Center for the Performing Arts, UC Davis is one of the premier performance venues on the West Coast, featuring an annual concert season that includes many of the world’s greatest soloists, orchestras and chamber ensembles.
The competition occurs annually, and offers the Founders Prize ($5000) in rotating instrumental categories to musicians age 18-22, as well as the Young Artists Prize ($1500) in both Piano and Instrumental divisions to musicians age 12-17.
The 2017 Young Artists Competition will offer the Founders Prize in Violin to violinists age 18-22.
