Anchorage Festival of Music

Ted Stevens Young Alaskan Artist Award

The 2024 Young Alaskan Artist Award Competition is now open!

Since 1999, the Anchorage Festival of Music has sponsored an annual competition to recognize an Alaskan classical musician entering the professional field. The competition is open to any Alaskan who is at least a college freshman pursuing a degree or program in music at an accredited institution.

To mark the 20th anniversary of the award and in recognition of the late Senator’s longtime support of the program, the Anchorage Festival of Music proudly renamed the award as the Ted Stevens Young Alaskan Artist Award in 2018.

Winners are presented in a debut recital and receive a substantial monetary award. Past winners continue to enjoy national and international careers as performers and music educators.

The 2024 Young Alaskan Artist Award Competition is now open! Check out the history and roster of winners here.
