Each spring the American University Symphonic Orchestra hosts a two-round Concerto & Aria Competition open to undergraduate students at American University who are enrolled in lessons. The Department of Performing Arts comes together for this annual celebration of the incredible talent of AU's student musicians. Competitions are held in February at the Katzen Arts Center's Abramson Family Recital Hall. Winners then perform in the fall with the AU Symphony Orchestra or Symphonic Band.
