Our Competitions

The Bach Society Orchestra hosts two annual competitions: the Concerto Competition and the Composition Competition. These competitions serve to promote the recognition of musical excellence in Harvard's student body. These competitions are open to all and only Harvard undergraduates. The Composition Competition winner was featured in our concert on Friday, November 15, 2013, and the Concerto Competition winner will play with the orchestra on Friday, May 2, 2014.

Concerto Competition

The Concerto Competition looks for distinction in solo performance across the Harvard musical community of undergraduates. We are currently accepting applications to try out for the 2014-15 Concerto Competition. Please apply here!
