Young Artists Competition

Each year, Red River Radio hosts a competition for young musicians (18 and under) throughout our listening region.   These young people submit recordings to be judged by a panel of distinguished professional musicians.   The winners chosen are offered the opportunity to perform for a radio broadcast in front of a live audience, and to have their performance professionally recorded by our staff.
