The Grand Rapids Symphonic Band is once again sponsoring the Youth Soloist Competition to find the state’s finest high school wind or percussion soloist. In addition to performing a solo with the band, the winning student will also receive a $1,000 scholarship made payable to the university or college that he/she will attend. The youth soloist will appear in concert with the Grand Rapids Symphonic Band, conducted by Barry Martin on Saturday, March 16, 2013 at Grandville High School. The winners each of the last two years have been GRYS members (Lydia Roth and Kramer MIlan). Let’s make it three in a row for GRYS!
