Every Spring the Palisades Symphony conducts a Young Artists 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. This concert will feature these competition winners.
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.
