The Concerto/Aria Competition is held annually at Hope College to give students who are studying applied music an opportunity to perform as a soloist with the Hope College Orchestra or Symphonette. Students must be enrolled in applied study with a Hope College music professor. It is not necessary to be a music major to enter the competition, but the student must be endorsed by the applied teacher. The competition is held in November and the performance is scheduled for late January. All works performed at the competition must be memorized and accompanied. Those students who were winners in the previous competition are ineligible to compete the following year.
