The Caprio II was geared to the emerging musician or high school level student who has performance experience and is actively engaged with a youth orchestra. The age limit for Caprio II was 18. Finalists were selected to perform live for the Competition judges.

The first place winner received $250 and the two finalists received $100 each.  There will be no Caprio II as a part of the 2012 Competition but look for its return in the future.
