Congratulations go out to 19-year-old Salt Lake City violinist Wil Hagen, who is one of four finalists in the Pittsburh Symphony Orchestra's Concerto Competition. In other words, he received one of the four highest vote counts from online votes.
You can see the four finalists on the same website: www.pittsburghsymphony.org/competition
Hagen and the other finalists will be flown to Pittsburgh for a live audition on June 11. The winner will be announced sometime shortly following. The winner will play a full concerto with the Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra on November 30 and December 2.
Hagen's mother said that Will's video had more than double anyone else's views, indicating that he had "unusually strong support."
Good luck to Hagen ...
