The Young Artist Showcase, formerly the Young Artist Competition, gives all solo performers and small ensembles ages 8-18 a chance to shine on the radio and receive feedback from 90.5 WUOL and 91.9 WFPK hosts.

We’re putting a fresh spin on the showcase by expanding our accepted genres and partnering with our sister station, 91.9 WFPK. All instruments, including piano, strings, woodwinds, brass, percussion, electronic music and voice are welcome to participate in the audition.

Participants are required to submit a video recording by uploading their video to YouTube as "unlisted," as a part of the first round of their application materials to enter. Participants entering must agree to be available in-person for round 2 auditions if chosen. Multiple winners will be chosen.

If you have questions, comments, or concerns please contact  education@wuol.org
