Watch the Best of the Best Compete in the Ima Hogg Competition

The Houston Symphony Ima Hogg Competition is one of the foremost multi-instrument competitions in the world. Named to honor the memory of Miss Ima Hogg, a co-founder of the Houston Symphony, this prestigious competition is designed to identify outstanding young instrumentalists and support their pursuit of careers in music. Ten contestants will be selected to perform in the Semi-finals. Four finalists will advance to perform with the Houston Symphony to determine the winner of The Grace Woodson Memorial First Prize and a $25,000 award. This national competition is open to young musicians, ages 16-26 who play standard orchestral instruments and piano.

Four finalists at the Ima Hogg Competition will perform a concerto with the Houston Symphony. If you cannot make it to the actual event, the concert will be broadcast live on Houston Public Media New 88.7. The First Prize recipient will receive $25,000 generously given by the Dennis Family in memory of Grace Woodson.

Philanthropic support for the Competition is provided by members of the Houston Symphony League, Wells Fargo, and other generous donors.
