Music Competition


Application & Video Auditions – March/ April 2017
Finalist Recitals – June 11, 2017

Potomac Arts Academy is excited to announce the first annual Music Competition for area student musicians!

The Potomac Music Competition is an exciting opportunity for area music students to gain audition experience and valuable musicianship feedback.  Musicians will compete (via YouTube video) for the opportunity to perform in the Final Recitals at the beautiful Harris Theater at George Mason University on June 11th, 2017. Open to all instruments and voice, grades K-12 and Adult Amateur, auditions will be judged by Mason Music faculty members and area professional artists, who will provide their feedback to students.  Proceeds will go to the Potomac outreach programs and scholarship fund, thereby allowing music students (and parents) to help others in their community just by performing!

This competition is open to anyone, not just Potomac students.
