THE BOLZ YOUNG ARTIST COMPETITION
Wisconsin Young Artists Compete: The Final Forte is the final round of the MSO's Bolz Young Artist Competition. Young artists from across the state of Wisconsin compete in the Bolz Young Artist Competition's two preliminary rounds for a chance to perform a movement from a concerto with the Madison Symphony Orchestra during the final round, which will be held in the Capitol Theater at the Overture Center.
WISCONSIN YOUNG ARTISTS COMPETE: THE FINAL FORTE
Wisconsin Young Artists Compete: The Final Forte is a FREE concert and LIVE broadcasts that Wisconsin Public Television (WPT) and Wisconsin Public Radio produce. They have captured an enormous following and numerous honors, including an Emmy Nomination. The 90-minute WPT program features profiles of each of the finalists.
HISTORIC COLLABORATION WINS AWARDS
The unique collaboration among the Madison Symphony Orchestra, Wisconsin Public Radio and Wisconsin Public Television is producing award-winning programming! In addition to an Emmy Award nomination, the Final Forte earned First Place in the "Special Interest" category from the Wisconsin Broadcasters Association in 2007 and was rated the fifth most-watched program in the Feb 2007 Nielsen ratings (the television audience was 63 percent greater than WPT's average audience in the Madison market). The 2008 broadcasts on WPR and WPT reached more than 60,000 viewers in the Madison market alone and there were an estimated 200,000 statewide viewers and listeners for the 2009 broadcasts.
JOHN DEMAIN'S TAKE
"This has been a very auspicious partnership. The quality of the broadcasts and the performances of the finalists are simply spectacular. I think this sends a magnificent message to our community and to the entire state of Wisconsin about the importance and effectiveness of our music education programs. It is an extraordinary opportunity for everyone to feel the commitment and energy of these young performers and to reflect on the central role the arts play in our lives. I look forward to these events with great joy."
