Red River Radio Seeks Entrants for
The Fifth Annual Young Artists Competition
Red River Radio is seeking classical instrumentalists and vocalists ages 18 and younger who live in Arkansas, Louisiana, or Texas, to participate in the Fifth Annual Red River Radio Young Artists Competition. *** Due to a conflict we have moved the broadcast date back one week. *** Winners will now have the opportunity to perform in a live radio broadcast on Sunday, October 5, 2014, at 3 p.m., to be held in the Red River Radio performance hall. Each winner will also receive a copy of their professionally recorded performance. Entries will be judged based on ability, musicality, and appropriateness of the selection for a radio program.
Interested music students should download and complete the application form and teacher approval below, have their teacher sign the approval form, and send both forms along with a CD to Red River Radio by 5 p.m., Friday, August 29, 2014. The CD should be an unedited performance of the piece that the applicant intends to play on our broadcast if selected.
Performances should be accompanied during recording. Competition winners may provide their own accompanist for the live broadcast or, if one is unavailable, an accompanist will be provided by Red River Radio. Winners will be notified starting Friday, September 5, 2014.
Before submitting a CD of their performance, applicants need to check their CD to be sure it has been properly recorded. Applicants should send their entry to: Red River Radio, P.O. Box 5250, Shreveport, LA 71135. Questions about the competition may be directed to the Red River Radio staff at 800-552-8502.
