Dear Music Educators:

 We are looking forward to experiencing Wyoming’s young talent during the WSO’s Young Artist Competition!  The application deadline, November 8th, is approaching quickly.  Please let me know if you have any questions and whether or not you have students who plan to enter and what instrument they play? We hope to have a wide range of applicants from the four corners of Wyoming. 

You can find information and the application materials at This is a great opportunity for students to further their playing, build their resume and showcase their musical talents to a Wyoming audience.

The work must be the same work on the recording submitted as part of the application.

Applicants will be screened by Music Director Christopher Dragon, finalists will then perform at Casper College’s Wheeler Hall for three qualified judges.
