Yale Harpist Competes In YouTube Concerto Competition
A Yale School of Music student is competing in an unique competition to earn a solo with the Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra.
Kristan Toczko is one of eight semi finalists competing in a YouTube Concerto Competition. They're featured on the PSO's website, which calls this competition the first of its kind. The public is encouraged to vote until April 30. Those votes will choose up to four finalists who will then audition in person for PSO Conductor, Manfred Honeck. The winner receives $10,000 and two solo performances with the Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra this fall.
WNPR's Lucy Nalpathanchil spoke with Kristan about the competition.
Voting and more information can be found at Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra's website.
