As a result of the recent 2011 competition, the clarinet position has been filled for this year with the prize going to Eric Abramovitz. The OSM annual competition covers all orchestral and voice categories in a rotating schedule over three years with next year’s categories of piano and percussion. We invite all those clarinettists interested in the YAP to apply next year for 2013.
