Hudson Valley Philharmonic ~ 45th String Competition at Skinner Hall, Vassar College

March 19, 2017 @ 11:00 am - 1:00 pm

ADMISSION IS FREE Donations Welcome

Three finalists perform in recital. A reception follows.

This string competition gives the public a rare opportunity to hear and see some of the best young violinists, cellists, and violists in the world before their careers have even begun. The competition has always attracted some of the finest conservatory string players in the world, and many participants have gone on to illustrious classical music careers.

The first prizewinner receives a cash award of $3,000 and will perform as guest soloist with the Hudson Valley Philharmonic during the following season, and will also have the opportunity to travel to Italy for a week to perform a recital at the MUSICAL LANDSCAPES OF TUSCANY FESTIVAL in August 2017.

Previous notables include: violist Marcus Thompson ’67 (Boston Chamber Players), cellist Fred Sherry ’68, violinist Ani Kavafian ’73 (Lincoln Center Chamber Players soloist), violinist Adela Pena ’85 (Eroica Trio), and violinist Judith Ingolfsson ’96 (1998 Indianapolis International Violin Competition winner).
