Hamden Symphony Orchestra is an all-volunteer orchestra of more than fifty musicians from the Greater New Haven area and beyond. The orchestra provides cultural enrichment to the community of Hamden, Connecticut and its surroundings through its series of concerts, its annual Young Musicians Concerto Competition, the Ruth T. Brooks Scholarship Award and by the orchestral experience it offers area musicians and soloists. Hamden Symphony Orchestra is committed to creating innovative and compelling programs for musicians to rehearse and perform together, and for audiences to experience and enjoy.
2017 will mark the forty-eighth Young Musicians Concerto Competition (YMCC) for the Hamden Symphony Orchestra. Each year, the Hamden Symphony Orchestra has organized the YMCC to give talented students the opportunity to perform a solo work with the orchestra. To be eligible the student must reside, attend school and/or study with a teacher in Connecticut, and have not yet graduated from high school.
For roughly thirty years we have honored a graduating Hamden High School student with the Ruth T. Brooks Scholarship Award. Named in honor of Ruth T. Brooks, our founding member, and presented annually, the award goes to a qualified senior from Hamden High School who has demonstrated excellence in the field of music.
