Concerto Competition for High School Musicians

Due to the conditions caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, the United States Marine Band has had to make the difficult decision to discontinue plans for the 2021 concerto competition in order to ensure the safety of our young artists from around the nation.

We are excited to launch the new phase of our competition this spring and invite all string, piano, and harp players to look for next year’s competition application in May of 2021.
 
Musicians of woodwind, brass, and percussion instruments will be able to compete once again in 2022-2023 competition.
