Welcome to the Houston Young Artists' Concert (HYAC) on Acceptd!  You are here because you are passionate about making music and sharing your talent with others.  HYAC provides you with many opportunities to perform throughout the Houston area, and supports your dream of becoming a great musician!

The first step is to go to www.hyac.org/audition_information.php for requirements concerning eligibility, repertoire, accompaniments, the audition process and important dates.  

The next step is to fill in the application and attach a performance video.  All submissions must be completed by November 5, 2018.

Once we have reviewed all the applications, we will post on our website (hyac.org) by November 19,  a list of those who have been chosen to perform in the audition finals on December 2, 2018 at the Kawai Piano Gallery (5800 Richmond Ave., Houston, TX 77057).  These auditions will be in front of a live audience.

Those who are chosen from the final round will be “Houston Young Artists” and will be invited to perform in all of the concerts for the 2019/2020 seasons.


  • If you are chosen for the finals, you must perform the same music as in your audition video
  • If the piece you audition with has an accompaniment, you must include that accompaniment in the audition video
  • If you are performing with an accompanist in your audition video, you do not have to perform with the same accompanist at the finals
  • Soloists, ensemble performers and accompanists will be chosen at the finals
  • Only musicians invited to and selected from the finals will be accepted into HYAC

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me.

Wishing you all the best in your musical endeavors!
