Barbara Wagner Chamber Music Competition Showcase


Top instrumentalists from the Michigan State University College of Music will compete for scholarships, performance opportunities and more at the 3rd annual Barbara Wagner Chamber Music Competition Showcase Saturday (April 1).

Four groups will perform: the Novak Trio, a string and piano trio; Grand River Brass, a brass quintet; Clap 7, a saxophone quartet; and Aereus, a trumpet ensemble.

After the final performance, judges Tim McAllister, a professor of music at the University of Michigan School of Music, Theatre and Dance; Seth Orgel, a professor of horn at Louisiana State University; and Ruggero Allifranchini, concertmaster for the Mostly Mozart Festival, will deliberate to decide the first, second and third-place winners. The audience will also select a People’s Choice Award winner. Recipients will be announced at the end of the evening.

The event is $12 for adults, $10 for seniors (ages 60 and older) and free for students and attendees under 18. For tickets and access to the digital livestream, visit
