Young performers go head-to-head at annual Fischoff contest


It was a weekend full of tough competition as young ensembles across the country went head-to-head at the annual Fischoff Competition.

Around 200 musicians competed in different divisions, showcasing a variety of talents. From wind ensembles to a string quartet, these young performers have been coming to South Bend for 40 years.

"It was driven by volunteers for many of those years and it has grown to become the largest competition of it's kind in the United States and it's right here in our community, it's a great thing," says Ann Divine, executive director of Fischoff. 

The grand winner was the Omer Quartet from Cleveland. They landed a cash prize and will be touring in Italy.
