History

The Bushell Concerto Competition is named in honor of the SPO’s first Music Director, Don Bushell, who started this annual event in 1946 to provide a performance opportunity for aspiring musicians. Every year since, this prestigious competition has provided professional development and an exclusive concert performance opportunity for outstanding area soloists.
