The NEC Prep Concerto Competition, open to all ages and instruments, is held every year in November. Several prizes are awarded in each orchestral category, and the winner performs with one of the orchestras (JRO, YRO, YS, or YPO). Students are selected to participate by faculty recommendation. The student must have been taking a minimum of 24 private lessons a year through the NEC Preparatory School for at least one academic year prior to the competition. Conductors may select additional competition prizewinners to perform as soloists. Application forms will be available in the Prep Office in the fall.
