The application deadline for the 2013 VSA International Young Soloists Competition has been extended to January 29, 2013. We invite entries from instrumentalists and vocalists ages 14 to 25 with a disability.

Since 1984, the VSA International Young Soloists Program has identified talented musicians who have a disability. This program annually selects up to four outstanding musicians from the United States and the international arena, and supports and encourages them in their pursuit of a career. These emerging musicians receive $2,500, professional development opportunities, and a performance at the Kennedy Center.

What is the definition of a disability? The Americans with Disabilities Act defines disability as "a physical or mental impairment that substantially limits one or more of the major life activities" of an individual. An impairment is a physiological disorder affecting one or more of a number of body systems, or a mental or psychological disorder. A disability may be visible (e.g., a person who is blind or uses a wheelchair) or invisible (e.g., a person with a learning or developmental disability).
