|Friends of the Lincoln Municipal Band,
The April 1st deadline for our annual John Shildneck Young Artist Competition is just around the corner. Don't let the young musicians in your life miss this opportunity to perform with the Lincoln Municipal Band and win some money!
The competition is open to musicians, middle school age and older, who have not reached their 22nd birthday on or before July 11, 2010, and perform on woodwind, brass, percussion or string instruments, as well as vocalists. Those auditioning must be residents of Nebraska or currently studying with a Nebraska teacher.
For the preliminary round, competitors must submit a recorded audition of the piece they wish to play with the band on cassette or CD, along with a completed application form and $5.00 non-refundable fee. The solo must be available with band accompaniment. Applications and recordings must be postmarked by April 1, 2010, and finalists will be notified by April 15. Finalists will be invited to a live audition on Sunday, May 16, 2010, 12:00 p.m. on the campus of Nebraska Wesleyan University in Lincoln.
The winner will receive a $400 prize, the opportunity to perform with the Lincoln Municipal Band at the first summer concert on July 11, 2010 at the John Shildneck Memorial Bandshell at Antelope Park, and recognition in the program. The runner-up will receive a $100 prize and recognition in the program.
