The annual Free Family Concert is always a winner with young children and features the Junior Division winner or the 37th annual Richard R. Deas Student Concerto Competition accompanied by the Wilmington Symphony Youth Orchestra.

Richard R. Deas Student Concerto Competition
Caitlin Newton Patterson is a sixth grade student at St. Mary Catholic School in Wilmington. She began violin five years ago with Ms. Lorraine Westermark at Suzuki Talent Education of Wilmington. She has played with the Wilmington Symphony Junior Strings ensemble since January 2013.
     Dr. Richard R. Deas, for whom the student concerto competition was named and in whose memory it continues, helped create the Wilmington Symphony Orchestra in 1971. As the chair of the UNCW Department of Music, he assisted in developing the competition in 1976 as a way to give talented young musicians an opportunity to perform with a symphony orchestra.
