National Philharmonic’s annual Concerto Competition identifies talented high school musicians who are ready to appear as concerto soloists with a full orchestra. Competition winners are awarded the exciting opportunity to perform as guest soloists with the National Philharmonic under Maestro Piotr Gajewski at the Music Center at Strathmore at the fall concerts for MCPS 2nd grade students. The Strathmore Student Concerts are created in partnership with the National Philharmonic, with support from Montgomery County Public Schools.
