Every Spring the Palisades Symphony conducts a competition for instrumentalists of middle and high school age from the local area. The winners are given cash prizes and an opportunity to perform a concerto movement with the orchestra in their June concert.

Year after year, the winners of this competition prove to be amazing performers, and the Palisades players have found it a great pleasure to serve as the orchestra for their solo appearances.
