The public is invited to attend the 2013 Dr. Robert Stanger Young Artists Auditions on Saturday, February 23, 2013, at Elmhurst Christian Reformed Church, 149 W Brush Hill Rd. in Elmhurst, IL. Hours are from 8:30 to 11:45 a.m. and 1:15 to 4:00 p.m. Those attending this free event may come and go throughout the day. Conducted by the Elmhurst Symphony Association in cooperation with the Elmhurst Kiwanis Club and the Auxiliary of the ESO through its Eunice B. Sidner Scholarship, the yearly auditions provide an opportunity for outstanding high school instrumentalists to gain recognition for their efforts and compete for the chance to perform a concerto movement with the Elmhurst Symphony Orchestra. Three judges will offer written comments to each of the 25 high school entrants who come from Elmhurst as well as many surrounding suburbs. Students will play music by a wide range of composers and for several different instruments, including piano, strings, brass and woodwinds. Monetary awards are given to the four top performers; the first-place winner will perform with the ESO and the three runners-up are invited to play their selections for local community groups. Everyone is welcome to attend the Stanger Auditions to hear these outstanding young musicians perform. Steinway Piano Galleries of Chicago are proud to provide the performance piano which will be played by student pianists at the Auditions.
