Young Concert Artists
Young Concert Artists is a non-profit organization founded in 1961, dedicated to discovering and launching the careers of exceptional, but unknown, young musicians from all over the world. Upon winning a YCA audition, artists are awarded a minimum three-year comprehensive management contract. During this time, Young Concert Artists launches their careers by booking recital and concerto engagements throughout the US and abroad, and providing full management services, professional press and publicity materials, and ongoing career guidance and development. Emerging artists benefit from YCA’s connections with the industry’s managers, concert presenters, conductors of major orchestras, and financial supporters, as well as its long-standing reputation for discovering and furthering the careers of extraordinary young artists.
