Something Musical

Stulberg Competition to be held virtually

For the 46th year, talented young string musicians will compete in the Stulberg International String Competition for monetary awards and opportunities to perform with symphony orchestras. But for the second year, due to Covid-19, the competition will be conducted online instead of in person at its usual location at Western Michigan University’s Dalton Center Recital Hall.

Beginning at noon May 22, the competition judges will view submitted digital videos from the 12 semifinalists and decide the winners of this prestigious competition. Audience members at home will be able to see and hear all 12 of these young artists compete and hear the winner announced. On May 23, the public will be able to observe master classes.
