Join us for an afternoon of outstanding music as students compete in the annual Marlin Engel Solo Competition.
The Marlin Engel Solo Competition was established by the Board of Trustees of Levine Music in 1980 to honor Jackie Marlin and Diana Engel, the school’s founders and co-directors from 1976-1980. Originally offering a single “Marlin Engel prize” the competition today offers awards in both piano and instrumental categories and in three age divisions: Junior (up to age 9), Intermediate (ages 10-13) and Senior (ages 14-18). The first place prize for piano is the Ida Canter prize, established by Dr. Jane Loeffler and her family as a tribute to her grandmother. Contestants perform two solo works or movements that contrast in style and period.
The competition schedule of events is forthcoming.
Levine Music gratefully acknowledges the support of D.C. Commission on the Arts and Humanities, the Dallas Morse Coors Foundation for the Performing Arts, and the Marinus and Minna B. Koster Foundation.
