They will be given performance opportunities, promotional marketing services, travel arrangements, educational residency experience, and extensive professional development.
The YCA International Auditions have been highlighting the work of exceptional young musicians for over 60 years. Previous winners include artists such as Emanuel Ax, Jean-Yves Thibaudet, Dawn Upshaw, and Pinchas Zukerman.
