We're coming to you from Notre Dame, Indiana, today for the 49th Annual Fischoff National Chamber Music Competition's Gold Medal Concert.
Both Senior Division Gold medal winners of this year’s competition will win a $3,500 cash prize and return for separate concert and outreach tours of the Midwest in the coming fall. The Senior String Gold Medalist will also be awarded a video recording in the Guarneri Hall in Chicago.
The two Gold Medal Winners will compete for the Grand Prize, which includes an additional $10,000 prize and a residency at the Emilia Romagna Festival in Italy. Today's concert will also feature a performance by the winning ensemble of the competition's inaugural Lift Every Voice Prize.
The Violin Channel recently discussed the competition with its executive director, Kara Kane.
