Rochester Association Performing Arts (RAPA) and Greece Performing Arts Society (GPAS) are partnering to bring back the Young Artist Competition for students in the greater Rochester area. The competition will be held on Saturday, December 9, from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. at Greece Arcadia High School, 120 Island Cottage Road, Rochester. All participants must complete an application by November 27.

For 40 years, only Greece students were involved in this annual event. Now, applications have expanded to include students in the greater Rochester area, and school-age students of RAPA’s School for Performing Arts, as well as continue to be open to all elementary, middle and high school students from Greece schools.

Competitors can perform in one of three categories – classical voice, instrumental or musical theatre – and will be separated by minis (third through fifth grade), juniors (sixth through ninth grade), and young adults (tenth through twelfth grade).  These young artists will compete for gift certificates, cash prizes and scholarships, and will perform in a public recital in January 2018.

Judges include Greece school teachers, RAPA team members, and other prominent community performance art professionals.Judges will give all competitors feedback on their performance, on their strengths and areas to improve.

Applications, including a $25 fee, close Monday, November 27. Application information is available at greeceperforming-arts.org or call 234-5636.
