The Brockton Symphony Orchestra Youth Concerto Competition

The Brockton Symphony is pleased to announce the new sponsor of our Youth Concerto Competition, the Prone Family Foundation. The Brockton Symphony Youth Competition provides the opportunity for an exceptional young musician to solo with the Brockton Symphony, and also offers awards for the first-, second-, and third-place winners. Auditions are held each fall and are open to instrumentalists between the ages of 12 and 18. The Symphony thanks the Prone Family Foundation and our past sponsors for their generous support of young musicians and of this Competition.

Prone Family Foundation

Established by the late attorney Joseph G. Prone of Lawrence, the Prone Family Foundation widely contributes to community and educational enrichment activities with an emphasis on scholarships. The Foundation honors Joseph Prone, a 1946 graduate of Lawrence High School, a 1954 graduate of Harvard Law School, and a retired Colonel in the United States Army Reserve. The Prone Family Foundation is managed by Joseph Prone's nephew, Trustee and President Stephen Prone of Stoughton.

Our Chairperson Susan P. Caplan notes, "The Youth Concerto Competition is a mainstay of Brockton Symphony's mission to encourage and stimulate education in classical music and to support young musicians. The Prone Family's truly generous partnership and contribution enables us to continue this important offering to music students in the greater Boston area. We are grateful to Stephen Prone and the Foundation for their generosity."
