The Schmidbauer Young Artist Competition

About the Competition

As of December 2017, the Schmidbauer Competition regretfully announces that the competition portion of its events will be cancelled until further notice. However, the spirit of the competition, which is to celebrate the highest level of musicianship for those whose hopes are to further their education music, continues. Those participants who entered the competition with the intention of studying at Stephen F. Austin State University in the Fall of 2018 should continue their efforts by registering for an audition. Students may do so by visiting the School of Music website.
