Performance spotlights Concerto Competition winners

Some of UW-Eau Claire's best musical talents were in the spotlight during the most recent University Symphony Orchestra concert, which featured the winners of the Concerto Competition.

The competition, held every other year, was founded 10 years ago by Nobuyoshi Yasuda, UW-Eau Claire professor of music and director of orchestra. It recognizes student winners in five divisions: percussion, wind, strings, piano and composition. This year a winner also was recognized for conducting.

Read about this year's winners in a recent Spectator story by Blugold student Rachel Helgeson.
