At the January 28, 2023 Annual Free Family Concert, "All that Jazz'", the Plainfield Symphony awarded scholarships to two members of the Plainfield Academy of the Arts & Advanced Studies (PAAAS) magnet school. The scholarship recipients are Wuilder Palles (alto saxophone) and Joshua Woodard (trombone). Each of these high school juniors will receive $1,000 for music lessons and other ways to assist them in their music education. Both musicians are members of the New Jersey Youth Symphony Jazz Orchestra and Big Band and take private lessons.
