Since 1919, the Chicago Symphony Orchestra Youth Auditions have featured the most talented young soloists from across Illinois. Now known as the Crain-Maling Foundation CSO Young Artists Competition, the program identifies one outstanding young performer to be featured in a CSO School Concert. All finalists compete onstage in Orchestra Hall, accompanied by the Civic Orchestra of Chicago. 

Details about the 2019/20 Young Artists Competition for violin, viola, cello and double bass will be posted to this page in mid-September.
