What is the is Louis Sherman Concerto Competition?
Each year, the Victoria Chamber Orchestra sponsors a concerto competition for young string players in honour of violinist Louis Sherman (1907-1999). The competition is open to all students of bowed instruments, age 18 years or younger as of January 1, 2021, who live on Vancouver Island or the Gulf Islands. Previous first prize winners are ineligible.
Due to the pandemic, this year’s competition was submitted by recording one movement of their chosen concerto, using as high quality recording equipment as is available to applicants.
