Dartmouth students showcase their talents at this annual music competition.

19/20 Hop Ensemble

The Culley Concerto Competition is open to all students enrolled at Dartmouth College, offering performers of woodwind, brass, string and percussion instruments the opportunity to perform a solo work of their choosing. Each performer in the competition, competing in one of three categories (strings, woodwinds or brass/percussion), will receive written comments and scores from a panel of judges, who will award prizes for Best Overall Performance ($500); 1st Prize in each category ($300); and 2nd Prize in each category ($100).

Each entrant is invited to perform a maximum of 10 minutes of the work of their own choosing, which may include concerti, sonatas or other solo works for their instrument. A professional accompanist is provided for the competition, including a 30-minute rehearsal with the accompanist prior to the competition. All performances must be accompanied by the provided accompanist; exception appeals can be made to Dr. Brian Messier, [email protected]
