Beverly Hills National Auditions Winners

Talented artists and ensembles selected in April at the Beverly Hills National Auditions and presented monthly the following season on the Friday evenings on the Music By The Sea concert series in the Library of the seaside town of Encinitas CA. From January through June, the concerts are presented on the following Sunday afternoons on Beverly Hills’ Music In The Mansion recital series in Beverly Hills’ historic Greystone Mansion.

Note: Because of COVID-19 travel restrictions, the artists and ensembles scheduled for fall 2020 will be re-scheduled in a future season. Presentation of concerts scheduled for 2021 will be  re-evaluated at a later date.
