Application Deadline: September 22, 2017

The UNC Southard Music Competition has traditionally been one of the school’s premier showcase events, highlighting the breadth and depth of the musical talent of students as soloists and chamber players.

The 2017 Southard Music Competition is open to all enrolled UNC Students (graduate and undergraduate) who are recommended by their applied teachers. All application requirements must be fulfilled to be eligible for an award.

Three scholarship awards will be awarded to outstanding soloists and/or ensembles:

First Place: $1850
Second Place: $1300
Third Place: $850

The award is to be split by a chamber group or with the accompanist of a solo work if the accompanist is a student.

The first place winner will perform at the UNC Showcase of the Arts at the Lonetree Performing Arts Center on January 19, 2018, and at the Southard Awards Dinner in the UNC University Center on March 28, 2018.

Please note that first place winners in any category from prior year competitions are ineligible to compete again.
