Congratulations to the winners of this year's Brown University Orchestra Concerto Competition

The BUO Concerto Competition is typically held each academic year in the fall. The winners are featured in the Orchestra's concerts soon thereafter.

We proudly congratulate the three winners of the Brown University Orchestra's recent Concerto Competition. Upcoming concerts, between the spring 2022 semester and next academic year, will feature performances by the winners. Aaron Gruen '23 will play Dmitri Shostakovich: Cello Concerto No. 1; William MacDonald '23 performs Alexander Arutiunian: Trumpet Concerto; and Ryan Sawyer '23.5 plays Paul Creston: Concertino for Marimba. Bravo!
