The WMHT Next Generation Festival will bring together college music programs from the Capital District, the Hudson Valley, and the Berkshires. This is a celebration of the music in our region and the talented young musicians making classical music today.

We are hosting a concert on Saturday, April 18, 2020, at the Troy Savings Bank Music Hall. WMHT welcomes submissions from all university music programs in our listening area. You may submit as many different ensembles as you would like. A panel (including members from the Troy Music Hall, WMHT, ESYO and others) will choose representative groups to perform during the concert. Each ensemble will have 15-20 minutes to perform.

Help WMHT and the Troy Savings Bank Music Hall showcase the wealth of talent in your school’s music department and inspire the Next Generation of Classical Musicians with your submission.

Have questions? Email Rob Brown at rbrown@wmht.org, or call 518 880-3400.

Our aim is to record the concert for future use on-air, therefore we will give preference to ensembles who will be performing works in the public domain (or with permissions secured).

Deadline for submissions: December 4, 2019.
