Awards have been presented to talented young musicians in Evansville.

In a news release, the EPO says the grand prize was awarded to flautist Allyson Donnelly of Newburgh for her performance of Bach’s Flute Concerto in D minor.
Donnelly took home a $1,000 cash prize and the opportunity to perform with the Philharmonic Orchestra during the Young People’s Concerts next year.
The second-place conductor’s award went to violinist Annie Donato of Jasper.
The third-place orchestra award went to harpist Emily Fowler of Mt. Carmel.
