Rodgers Instruments Corporation is pleased to announce that the Rodgers North American Classical Organ Competition has been revamped and will have a new focus on young performers starting in 2015.
When the competition began in 2011, it was open to organists up to the age of 35. Now, with the spectacular performances that the judges have seen from younger musicians during the past several years, it will become an event exclusively for 14- to 22-year-olds.
Audition recordings will be accepted starting this fall. The deadline to submit audition recordings is January 5, 2015. Judges will select finalists based on the recordings, and the winners will be determined after a final round of performances on May 5, 2015.
