Society of American Musicians Competition

March 20, 2016


The Society of American Musicians was founded in 1914 with the intent of promoting the best interests of music in America, and maintaining the highest standards of musicianship. Through the competition, its awards, and performance opportunities, the Society offers assistance and encouragement to young musicians and promising artists. The Society of American Musicians hosts an annual competition for a wide range of instruments: cello, guitar, flute, piano, viola, and violin each spring in Chicago. Instrumentalists under the age of 24, who currently reside in the United States, are eligible to participate in the competition.


Congratulations to the following Music Institute of Chicago students.
