The 2013 Young Concert Artists International Audition winners gave a private gala concert two days after receiving their awards. This week the Young Artists Showcase reprises those exclusive, intimate performances.
While the Young Artists Showcase is rounding out its 36th year on the air at WQXR, some organizations have been at it even longer. Young Concert Artists has nurtured budding talents of classical music since 1961. Founded and still directed by Susan Wadsworth, YCA holds international auditions each year to seek out new and burgeoning careers to bolster.
