The Mary West Solo Competition is held annually in the fall for students of the violin, viola, cello, bass, harp and classical guitar. Participants must be MNSOTA members or students of MNSOTA members. Participants must live in Minnesota or study in Minnesota. Students in Elementary Division (age 11 and under ) and Intermediate Division (age 12 to 14) prepare one piece. Junior Division (age 15 to 18) and Senior Division (age 19 through 25) students prepare two pieces in contrasting styles by different composers. Determine student's age as of January 1, 2017, and students whose birthday is January 1 should compete in the younger of the two categories.

Registration is now Closed.
