The Final Forte finalists were selected from a group of young Wisconsin artists who competed in the Bolz Young Artist Competition’s two preliminary rounds that took place virtually this year.

We are excited to celebrate the results of the Madison Symphony Orchestra’s 2021 Bolz Young Artist Competition! The four finalists performed their concerto selections with piano accompaniment for a panel of three judges. Verbal introductions of the finalists and their musical selections were made from the stage by MSO’s Music Director, John DeMain, and MSO’s Director of Education and Community Engagement, Kathryn Schwarzmann.

The Final Forte competition was captured by Audio for the Arts and Painted Post Multimedia in Overture Hall. Wisconsin Young Artists Compete: The Final Forte post-production is being done by PBS Wisconsin. The final production will presented online in the spring, and may also be broadcast.
