Competition Postponed!

The 2016 Lucy Palermo Weed String Competition has been postponed to 2017. This follows the decision by ASTA to postpone their national competition until 2018. While the Lucy is no longer a preliminary for the ASTA competition, it still serves as the best preparation for the national, and makes use of the repertoire required for national contestants. To proceed with the Lucy in 2017, SDSTA would have to choose their own repertoire list, and would then be out of sync with the national competition. We apologize for any inconvenience, but this decision gives SDSTA, and you, another year to be prepared for the next Lucy.

All following information is currently out-of-date, but will be left for reference until new information is available.

Eligibility

The Lucy Palermo Weed String competition is open to violinists, violists, cellists, and bassists born on or after March 20, 1996, who reside in South Dakota or Nebraska, or who study with teachers residing in South Dakota or Nebraska. Either student or teacher should be a current member of ASTA.
