Here is an awesome Music Competition entry from a 10 year old.Violettes 1st Annual Composition Competition for Ages 10 thru 17. The music competition entries are currently being reviewed for the first competition, and notable judges are: Grammy Award winner, Lucas Richman, composer and conductor of both the Knoxville Symphony Orchestra (KSO) and Bangor SO; and Klezmer Jazz composer, musician, and writer, Paul Brody, who has records with his band, Sadawi, on Tzadik and Enja records labels. We received wonderful entries nationwide from California to Florida, but no guitar or country music submissions. We hope to see more genres in our next music competition. Next year we would like to pair mentors with students thru skype. If you are interested in being notified about our next competition as a competitor, mentor or judge, please contact us. Violettes has more exciting news. We will have an article in the Spring 2014 Greater Nashville Travel Host Magazine. Famous Nashville Guitar artist is now painting Signature Rob Hendon Guitar Bags for Upscale folks!
