Dear YCMC Community,

I’m writing today to share with you that WDAV Classical Public Radio will not hold its annual Young Chamber Musicians Competition in 2023. We’re pausing YCMC this year because we’re pursuing other objectives in the short term, and evaluating how or whether to continue the competition in the future. The decision to pause YCMC was not reached lightly as we know that this annual event is anticipated by many.

WDAV is grateful for the many musicians, coaches, jurors, and volunteers who have given their time and talent to YCMC over the years. We are proud of the contribution YCMC has made to keeping chamber music vibrant, inspiring, and welcoming for talented young ensembles and fans alike. Rest assured, WDAV is committed to continuing this work as we map out our future.

With gratitude,

Will Keible
Director of Marketing & Corporate Support
