Competition provides chance for young musicians to perform live on radio

Classical KING FM 98 radio station announced today the 2013 Young Artist Awards Competition, created by Classical KING and the Seattle Chamber Music Society.

Entries are being accepted online at KING.org Feb. 4 through April 5.

This competition provides a platform for young artists while also including listener's in the competition – everyone is invited to vote for their favorite young musician online at KING.org from April 29 to May 13, 2013.

The competition this year will be broken out into two categories, one for younger musicians ages 6 to 13 and another for more experienced musicians ages 14 to 20. Last year the competition attracted more than 100 entries by young people ranging in age from 8 to 20.

The competition invites non-professional acoustic instrumentalists, vocalists, and chamber groups to submit an entry form and video to Classical KING FM 98.1 online before the April 5 deadline. Acceptable submissions are YouTube videos lasting no more than five minutes.

Judges from around the Pacific Northwest will create a list of 10 finalists from the online entries. The finalists will perform together on May 3 and 10 on KING FM's NW Focus LIVE program hosted by Sean MacLean in the Classical KING FM studios. The winner of the Chamber group will also receive private lessons from professional musicians and a chance to perform at the 2013 Seattle Chamber Music Festival.

Official contest rules and entry forms are online at KING starting Feb. 4.
