The University of Mount Union and the Alliance Symphony Orchestra biannually present Solo con Tutti, a concerto/aria competition in the fall.
Participants are required to perform one or more movements of a standard concerto, a vocal aria, a single movement work or a concert piece for which orchestral or wind ensemble accompaniments will be available. Each contestant also has to perform the solo part of his or her selection in its entirety.
Participants must be full-time University of Mount Union students enrolled in applied lessons during the competition semester. No more than one winner will be selected by a panel of judges; honorable mention(s) may be awarded at the discretion of the judges. Winners will play their repertoire selection with the Repertory Strings Orchestra, Alliance Symphony Orchestra or the University of Mount Union Wind Ensemble during the spring semester.
