For the past sixteen seasons, Rose Tree Pops has conducted a youth soloist competition.
The soloist is selected from area schools and performs his or her solo
during the orchestra's Spring Concert.
For our 2019-2020 season, we conducted auditions and were able to select two excellent
youth soloists. We are so disappointed that these solists were unable to perform with us
this spring and summer due to our concerts being cancelled because of the Covid-19 virus.
You can find more info about our soloists on our
Current Winners page.
Please check back later for more
details on our 2020-2021 season auditions.
