The University of Calgary’s most outstanding music students compete for a chance to perform as soloists accompanied by the Calgary Philharmonic Orchestra (CPO). The winner of the First Prize will have the opportunity to perform as a soloist with the CPO in one of their professional concerts as well as the chance to meet with one or more of the CPO conductors for a mentorship session.

This year's competitors are:

  • Zixin Chen, piano
  • Andrew Park, cello
  • Conor Stuart, violin
  • Linda Wang, marimba

This performance competition for music students is possible thanks to a special partnership between the University of Calgary, the RBC Foundation and the Calgary Philharmonic Orchestra.
