We were pleased to learn that Evren Ozel, a participant in this year's Minnesota Varsity showcase, is a finalist in the concerto round of the Thomas & Evon Cooper International Competition, a competition for young musicians ages 13-18 at Oberlin Conservatory in Ohio.

The three top finalists will perform on Friday night with the Cleveland Orchestra. Evren's next performance is tonight at 7:00 p.m. EDT/6:00 p.m. CDT; you can watch Evren's performance, as well as others in the competition, streaming here. Congratulations and good luck to you, Evren!
