Concerto Aria Competition

2021 Concerto Aria Competition

Each year, the Music Department organizes a Concerto Aria competition that gives students the rare opportunity to perform a concerto or equivalent music with the Mount Holyoke Symphony Orchestra.

With the social distancing requirements of the pandemic, the 2021 edition of the competition will be entirely virtual. Interested students should sign up for this year's competition.
