Jonathan Holland, a graduate Euphonium Performance student at Bob Jones University, was recently named the Southern Division brass winner of the Young Artist Competition sponsored by the Music Teachers National Association.
Holland competed at the University of South Florida where he and six other Southern Division state winners played a full 40-minute recital comprised of pieces from a variety of style periods. Undergraduate and graduate students from nine different states made up the southern division of the competition.
Holland is one of only two BJU students to win this competition. A native of Egg Harbor, N.J., Holland will compete as a national finalist in the collegiate level competition in San Antonio, Texas, in April.
