Students auditioned for the Honors Performance Series and were accepted after a review by the Honors Selection Board. Acceptance to the elite group is a direct result of the talent, dedication, and achievements demonstrated in their applications and audition recordings. These talented musicians will join other performers from 43 United States, several provinces of Canada, Australia, and Taiwan.

Junior Finalists will come together for five days in June 2018 in New York City to have the opportunity to learn from master conductors, work with other Junior Finalists, and get a taste of New York City.

The Honors Performance Series was created to showcase accomplished individual high school and middle school performers on an international level by allowing them to study under master conductors and perform in the celebrated venue, Carnegie Hall.
