The Fort Dodge Area Symphony has had a very successful Young Artists program since 1966, where young artists from across our State compete for music scholarships and the opportunity to perform as featured soloist with our Orchestra. As of our 2018-2019 season, we have had the pleasure of sharing the concert stage with 204 Young Artist soloists.

Due to the current COVID-19 Pandemic, the Fort Dodge Area Symphony will not be holding a 2021 Young Artist Competition. Winners of our 2020 Young Artists Competition will be featured on our concert in Spring 2021.

The Young Artist winners receive music scholarships through funding from the estate of Eva Paterson.
