Since 1946, the Musical Merit Foundation of Greater San Diego has held a yearly competition for instrumentalists and vocalists. Competition winners (protégés) have demonstrated extraordinary education, prodigious talent and skill.


Many of our protégés are currently studying in prestigious universities and conservatories, or performing professionally in symphonies and opera companies throughout the world.
