The finalists are invited to appear as soloists with Bremerton Symphony Orchestra and in solo performances throughout the season.
Student soloists from previous years have gone on to successful careers, according to the association. One recently joined New York Philharmonic and another joined Boston Symphony.
Two sensational pianists, Adrian King and Caleb Winslow, are both recent winners of Bremerton Symphony’s Young Artist Competition, as well as various national competitions. At Blooming Brilliance, these two rising stars will be joined by winners of this year’s competition.
On these two evenings, audience members will hear the winning sonata and solo performances of the competition, including masterworks by Ludwig van Beethoven and Frédérick Chopin, performed by virtuosi of tomorrow, the association said.
