Young Artist Competition


The Folsom Lake Symphony is proud to announce its inaugural Young Artist Competition, the initial focus of the symphony’s Emerging Artists Program. The competition, held at the Harris Center for the Arts at Folsom Lake College, will be judged by a panel of professionals chaired by the symphony’s music director and conductor, Peter Jaffe. Cash awards are given to the Division winners ($500 each) and the Grand Prize winner ($1,000). All winners will perform at the Young Artists Recital. The Grand Prize winner will also perform with the Symphony at the Spring Family Concert.
