Story

ABOUT THE COMPETITION

The M2 Competition is an all-levels, young artist Music competition focused around encouraging and fostering musical participation and excellence. We believe that competitions can serve as a valuable learning experience for young musicians by assisting with goal setting and giving them the chance to perform onstage. We also believe that young artists should be given the forum to listen to their peers and to feel a strong sense of community in their music making.

Therefore, the M2 Competition is designed to be a friendly and rewarding experience. All competitors will be awarded a certificate with either a Bronze, Silver, or Gold designation based upon their performance, and will also receive a detailed written report by professional musicians serving as the competition adjudicators. Competitor levels are mixed to allow for students to learn from each other.

Additional prizes will include a scholarship or entrance to the 2022 M2 Program, an invitation to perform at the 2022 Buellton in the Park Festival, and the chance to sing the national anthem at the 2022 Buellton in the Park Festival. 

COVID Regulations: In order to protect the most vulnerable members of our community, we will ask that masks be worn inside the church regardless of vaccination status whilst listening to the competition. Masks do not need to be worn onstage.
