Honors Competitions

The bi-annual Honors Competition offers students the opportunity to perform in a recital of the highest caliber. Held at the end of the Fall and Spring semesters, these events are reserved for the most advanced students performing advanced repertoire. Judges select 6-8 winners based on overall performance and the need to create a well-balanced recital program.

Honors Recitals, held in the Leith Symington Griswold Hall, are two of the Preparatory’s more public events. In addition to our faculty and administration, friends and supporters of the Peabody Institute are invited to listen as the Preparatory presents its’ “best of the best”. 

Please note that this event has been modified for 2020-2021 to accommodate a virtual format.

Part Recital Competition

Encompassing three age categories (age 12 and under, age 13-18, and age 19 and older), the Part Recital Competition invites accomplished musicians to audition for a recital that is different from any of the Preparatory’s other recitals. Interested and qualified students who have prepared 15 to 20 minutes of music (or “part” of a recital) are entered by their teacher to audition for a panel of noted musicians and educators from the Baltimore/Washington area. Three or four winners are selected to perform on a recital which is scheduled on a Sunday evening in late April or early May.

Please note that processes for this event are pending.

Preparatory String Ensemble Competition

The Preparatory String Ensemble hosts an annual competition to feature a young string student in a solo performance with the ensemble. Students are nominated by their teachers for the competition which takes place in January for a panel of adjudicators. The winner performs with the Preparatory String Ensemble during its Spring Concert.

NOTE: The PSE Concerto Competition has been canceled for the 2020-2021 due to COVID-19. 

Peabody Wind Orchestra Competition

Held in the fall semester as part of the Preparatory’s Concerto Competition Day, this event provides young wind players the opportunity to audition for the chance to perform a short solo piece with the Preparatory Wind Orchestra. The competition is judged by local professional musicians and all students receive feedback about their audition. The winner performs with the Wind Orchestra on the Peabody Preparatory Concerto Concert held in February of that academic year.

Please note that this event has been modified for 2020-2021 to accommodate a virtual format.

Young Artists Orchestra Concerto Competition

Held in the fall semester as part of the Preparatory’s Concerto Competition Day, the Young Artists Concerto Competition provides intermediate and advanced students, who are aged 14 and under, the opportunity to compete for a solo performance with the Preparatory’s Young Artists Orchestra. The winner is chosen to rehearse and perform one movement of a Baroque concerto with the Young Artists Orchestra on the Peabody Preparatory Concerto Concert held in February of that academic year.

Please note that this event has been modified for 2020-2021 to accommodate a virtual format.

Peabody Youth Orchestra Concerto Competition

Held in the fall semester as part of the Preparatory’s Concerto Competition Day, the Peabody Youth Orchestra Concerto Competition offers advanced string, wind and piano students, aged 18 and under, the opportunity to compete for the chance to perform an entire concerto with the Peabody Youth Orchestra. The winner performs with the Peabody Youth Orchestra on the Peabody Preparatory Concerto Concert held in February of that academic year.

Please note that this event has been modified for 2020-2021 to accommodate a virtual format.
