— The final round of the second University of Central Arkansas/Conway Symphony Orchestra High School Concerto Competition will be open to the public at 3 p.m. Saturday in the recital hall of the Snow Fine Arts Building at UCA. There is no charge to attend.

Eleven high school students from Conway, Van Buren, Stuttgart, Dardanelle, North Little Rock, Little Rock, Brinkley and Fort Smith have entered the competition.

"This is a great representation from across the state of some of our finest high school musicians," said Carolyn Brown, associate professor of music at UCA, principal flute and board member for CSO, which organized the competition. The event is cosponsored by the UCA and the Conway Symphony Orchestra.

Winners will be chosen from the woodwind, brass and string divisions to win a $350 prize. The three winners will compete in the final round and the overall winner will receive an additional $500 grand prize, the Phillip Gullic Award, donated by Kim and Phillip Gullic of Conway.
