2020 Winners Announced at New York’s Young Concert Artists International Auditions
Pianist Zhu Wang, mezzo-soprano Megan Moore and bass-baritone William Socolof have been announced as the 1st prize winners at the 2020 Young Concert Artists International Auditions
Founded in 1961 by Susan Wadsworth, The Young Concert Artists International Auditions differ from a competition, as there are no rankings, and any number of winners can be selected – with each candidate competing against a standard of excellence, not each other.
A current post-baccalaureate diploma student at the Curtis Institute of Music, Zhu is a former 1st prize winner of the Zhuhai International Mozart Competition for Young Musicians, Manhattan International Music Competition, Hilton Head Young Artist Piano Competition, Music Academy of the West Solo Piano Competition, PianoTexas Concerto Competition and Juilliard Gina Bachauer International Scholarship Piano Competition.
A current Artist Diploma student at The Juilliard School, Megan is a former top prize winner at the Gerda Lissner Lieder & Song Competition.
A current graduate student at The Juilliard School, William is a former fellow at The Tanglewood Music Festival where he appeared with the Boston Pops and Keith Lockhart.
The 2020 jury comprised Daniel Kellogg, Alessio Bax, J'Nai Bridges, Eugene Drucker, Wolfram Koessel, Tara Helen O'Connor, Rossen Milanov, Orli Shaham, Weston Sprott, Michael Stern, Howard Watkins and Susan Wadsworth.
Previous recipients include: Pinchas Zukerman, Ida Kavafian, Chee-Yun, Emanuel Ax, Murray Perahia and Anne Akiko Meyers – and VC Artists Paul Huang, Benjamin Beilman, Ray Chen, Stephen Warts, Zlatomir Fung, Edgar Moreau, Xavier Foley, SooBeen Lee and Risa Hokamura.
