For the Classical Finals Wednesday and Thursday, Finalists are required to each play one classical concert (choosing from among Mozart's five violin concerto or Haydn Violin Concerto No. 1) with the East Coast Chamber Orchestra (ECCO). On Friday and Saturday, each Finalist must play a major violin concerto with the Indianapolis Symphony Orchestra.
