Loonis McGlohon Young Jazz Artist Competition

Charlotte legend Loonis McGlohon was a world-renowned master musician, composer and visionary. In recognition of his many decades as a composer, writer, and jazz ambassador, Blumenthal Performing Arts and The Leon Levine Foundation established the Loonis McGlohon Young Jazz Artist Competition as a tribute to this special individual.

From the total number of applicants, up to 10 finalists will be selected to perform at the Loonis McGlohon Young Jazz Artist Competition on Saturday, May 4, 2019 at the Tent Stage at Romare Bearden Park during the Charlotte Jazz Festival. The competition will be judged by a panel of musicians from the renowned Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra, and each finalist will receive critiques from these artists during the competition.

Thanks to The Leon Levine Foundation, the first, second, and third place winners of the competition will receive, through a combination of cash and compensated performances, $3000, $2000, and $1000, respectively. These prizes were created for the purpose of enhancing the winners’ music education and launching their careers as performing jazz musicians.

The competition is free and open to the public, so come and cheer for your favorite student!
