Northbrook Public Library Youth Solo Competition Recitals

We congratulate each of the young musicians who submitted performances for our first Youth Solo Competition. Our competition was open to all musicians (both voice and instrument) ages 11-18. The winners were invited to perform a recital in our Auditorium, and our Grand Prize winner was invited to perform in our Auditorium and also perform a second recital at the Wilmette Public Library. 

We invite you to enjoy performances by each of the talented performers who were selected as our Northbrook Public Library Youth Solo Competition winners.
