  • Winners will be selected to perform during the following season.

  • The Piano Competition is open to ECYS members and non-members.

  • The "All-ECYS" Competition is open to ECYS members only and is for all instruments (excluding piano).

  • The application deadline is final. Please read all instructions carefully.

  • There is a $40 non-refundable application fee.

  • The schedules for the Piano and All-ECYS competitions will be posted on this page. There will be no other notifications made.
