“The application has changed this year …” CAG President Tanya Bannister has told The Violin Channel.

“We are seeking to partner with young musicians who not only exemplify artistic excellence and engagement with their audience … but who also have an entrepreneurial spirit - and will go on to create an impact in the world,” she has said.

This year’s winners will receive US $5,000 plus 2 years artist management and career development on the roster of the Concert Artists Guild – including performance opportunities with more than 40 leading orchestras, concert series and festivals and a New York showcase performance live-streamed internationally on The Violin Channel.

Previous CAG 1st prize winners include the Pacifica Quartet, violinists Jennifer Koh and Joseph Lin – and VC Artists InMo Yang, Alexi Kenney, Yoojing Jang and the Verona and Aizuri String Quartets.
