It is our privilege to have them lend their wisdom and talent to the Competition. Additionally, we have made some tweaks to the Competition schedule. Forward momentum for this world class organization means constantly engaging inspired people from various realms of the music world, as well as keeping an eye on how we can improve any processes.
