Support the Contest!

The Contest operates as a non-profit entity through the University of Mississippi Department of Music.  A separate budget is not provided for Contest operating expenses. Funds must be generated through ticket sales and grants to go toward cash prizes & trophies, guest artist & judges’ fees, staff hotel, advertising, and a host of other logistical expenses.
