Mondavi Center resident pianist Lara Downes hosts a celebratory concert at 2 p.m. Sunday, March 2, at the Mondavi Center’s Jackson Hall. The concert will feature the winners of the annual Mondavi Center Young Artists Competition and the world premiere performance of a newly commissioned piano work by composer Mohammed Fairouz.

Ticket holders may also attend the final competition round on Saturday, March 1.

According to Downes, there are several new aspects to the competition this time around, as the event is drawing more and more participants from around the nation.

“This year the Mondavi Center Young Artists Competition went on the road, auditioning young artists nationwide at rigorous auditions in six cities: Davis, Los Angeles, Fort Worth, Indianapolis, New York and Rochester,” Downes said. “Now we are thrilled to welcome 21 extraordinary young musicians, ages 12 to 20, chosen from these regional auditions to compete in the live final round Saturday.”

“These young artists bring the highest level of musicianship to this exciting final round of competition.”

The March 1 finals and Winners Concert on March 2 are open to the public. Discounted tickets to both events may be purchased with Promo Code YAC15, at the Mondavi Center box office or online at http://www.mondaviarts.org/events/event.cfm?event_id=1369&season=2013.

The audition schedule for March 1: 10 to 11:30 a.m. for young artist instrumentalists; 12:30 to 2:30 p.m. for young artist pianists; and 3 to 5 p.m. for founders division pianists.

In addition, internationally renowned master teacher John Perry, a judge for the competition, will give a piano masterclass at 9:30 a.m. Sunday, March 2, which is open to ticket-holders for the competition events.
