Canadian Violinist Awarded $125,000 Prix Goyer Prize
Canadian violinist Marc Djokic has been awarded Canada’s 2nd biennial Prix Goyer classical music prize
It has been announced today that Canadian violinist Marc Djokic has been awarded Canada’s 2nd biennial Prix Goyer classical music prize.
A graduate of the New England Conservatory and the Indiana University Jacobs School of Music, Marc will receive a CAD $50,000 bursary, the production and distribution of 18 classical music videos, a new work commission by composer Matthias Maute - and extensive business coaching.
Billed as Canada's biggest classical music prize, the entire award is valued at CAD $125,000 (USD $103,000)
First presented in 2015 in recognition of a Canadian collaborative emerging talent, the prize was named in honor of the late Jean-Pierre Goyer - a prominent business man and politician who served as the long-time chair of the Montreal Arts Council.
The prize is not applied for, but rather a committee assesses nominees over a period of time - without the candidates knowing they are under consideration.
