The MHYACF is an organization created for the purpose of encouraging young talented aspiring musicians to grow artistically, to perfect their musical abilities, and to provide performing opportunities.

The first and second place winners will receive monetary prizes; first place $5,000.00, second place $1,000.00. The two winners will be featured and promoted in an evening recital together on March 6, 2016 at the Duncan Recital Hall at the Shepherd School of Music at Rice University.
