The Twin Cities chapter is pleased to announce that it will host a chapter Competition in conjunction with the National AGO Quimby competition. The date for the Twin Cities competition is Saturday, April 17, 2021

The first prize of $2,000 is provided by the Schubert Club and the second prize of $1,000 is sponsored by TCAGO member Phil Asgian.

Due to the pandemic this competition will be a virtual competition, with competitors submitting recordings. Below are more details taken from the national website:

  • Competitors will submit an initial online application; the deadline of submission is January 15, 2021.
  • Each competitor will subsequently create a recording of their RCYO repertoire with the aid of a proctor.
  • The proctor will upload the recorded performance into a special “Add Your RCYO Recording” online application. The proctor can also create CDs to be submitted via USPS.
