The Concerto Competition

Held in the Jewel Box Theater at Clark County Library. The YAO Concerto Competition showcases our musicians in a live competition for a chance to win the $500 FAYM Competition Cash Prize, perform their concerto with our orchestra in April, and a $300 Audience Prize to be decided by you, our audience members. For the first time ever in Las Vegas, the audience will have a say on who should win! The YAO Concerto Competition is sponsored in part by the FAYM organization and donor, Jonathan Krehm.
