2017 Young Artist Concerto Competition Winner

Introducing Miss Alice Guo, winner of the Young Artist Concerto Competition!


Alice is a 14-year old Overland Park native. When she was in the 4th grade she, along with the other students in her class, was introduced to the various stringed instruments. She became very interested in the cello and started taking private lessons.

Now an 8th grader at Harmony Middle School, Alice plays in her school orchestra. She takes lessons from Allen Probus and has participated in many additional musical activities, including the KC Youth Symphony, Heartland Chamber Music, Interlochen Arts Camp in Michigan, and many other cello competitions. She was recently a finalist in the Kansas City Symphony’s Young Artist Competition. Alice and a few of her friends also play at a senior home every Friday.

As the winner of the competition Alice will perform at our April concert. She will also receive a $500 cash prize.

Congratulations, Alice!
