  • Promoting the accomplishments of artists with disabilities through our artist registry, exhibitions, and performances
  • Increasing access to the arts through professional development workshops

VSA Florida Young Soloist Program 2016-17

VSA Florida is proud to announce our annual statewide program featuring the talent of Florida’s young musicians.  Prior to the application process for the International Young Soloist Program each year, VSA Florida facilitates an adjudicated statewide program to recognize the talent of our young musicians.  Finalists selected by a panel of judges are given a chance to perform at a professional venue to be determined each year. These finalists, as well as all other applicants, will represent Florida by having their musical entries sent to Washington, DC to compete in the VSA International Young Soloist Program.
