Season Finale: Stars of Tomorrow
The Young Artists Concert

Fort Dodge Middle School Auditorium
Fort Dodge, Iowa

American composers offer terrific bookends for our annual salute to young talent. Our season finale concert opens with William Schuman’s Newsreel, his homage to the informative tidbits shown before feature films. Winners of our annual Young Artist Competition take center stage to dazzle us with their superb artistry before we bring our season to a close with music by the undisputed king of film score composers, John Williams’s Star Wars.

The Young Artists Auditions will be held on Saturday, January 21, 2017. The winners will be listed on the Young Artists page when they are determined.
