a taste of the professional classical musician’s life through performing and mentoring


Rondo Young Artist is an international concert presentation that encourages young musicians to further their talents as classical singers and instrumentalists, and foster their love of music. Our idea is simple: to build participants’ confidence, preparing them for successful adult lives, while helping their budding musical careers and promoting the spread of classical music in our communities.

Rondo winners grace world-renowned concert halls, such as Carnegie's Weill Recital Hall, Merkin Concert Hall, Victor Borge Auditorium, and more. Winners will receive achievement awards and significant media exposure, as well as input from our renowned jury panel is provided for every participant. Rondo maintains a personal touch and provides insight into the world of professional classical music.

Rondo Young Artist is a New York-based not-for-profit organization established by accomplished concert musicians and music teachers.
