GPAS will be partnering with The Rochester Association of Performing Arts (RAPA) to bring back The Young Artists Competition. This began in 1973 and was held for 40 years until 2013, most recently under the direction of the late Mike Szatkowski. Applications will now be open to all elementary, middle, and high school students from Greece schools and expanded to include students in schools in the Greater Rochester area, as well as school-age students of RAPA’s School for Performing Arts. The competition is scheduled for December 9, 2017 with a recital for the winners in early 2018. Awards will include the Phyllis Smith Oyer Musicianship Award and the new Mike Szatkowski Extraordinary Performance in Theatre Arts Award.
