Artist Presentation Society exists to identify, encourage and promote exceptional young musicians in the Midwest.

Auditions are held annually for vocalists, pianists, solo instrumentalists and chamber ensembles. Winners are given public recital performance opportunities in the early stages of their careers as well as a substantial monetary award.

In this way, Artist Presentation Society makes classical music more accessible to the public, particularly to the younger generation.
