About Con Brio Music Competition

The Con Brio Music Competition was founded in 2004 by Mike Vermillion. The competition was started in Park City, UT, and is still run in Park City today. Originally the competition was only open to residents of Wasatch county, but is now open to anyone, anywhere. Over the years the competition has grown and matured.
