A very important part of Tri-County's program is its Annual Youth Festival, established in 1943. Tri-County Concerts Association organizes one of the area's most prestigious competitions for aspiring young musicians living in Chester, Delaware, and Montgomery Counties in Southeastern Pennsylvania.
Auditions are open to high-school and middle-school students in a wide variety of instruments, including piano, strings, winds, voice, and ensembles, as well as harp, classical guitar, and percussion. In 2021 for the 79th Youth Festival, instead of live auditions, students will audition by submitting a video via the audition platform Acceptd. Read the 2021 Guidelines for detailed information.
The festival offers talented students an opportunity to receive critiques from professional judges. Those students deemed outstanding by the judges are given monetary awards; their photos and accomplishments are featured on the Tri-County web site; and the 2021 winners' audition videos will be featured in a virtual winners' recital.
Winners will be announced shortly.
