The National Concert Hall Young Musicians’ Award for String Players

The National Concert Hall Young Musician Award for String Players is made biennially in support of the development of talented young musicians in Ireland.

The award was instigated following a benefit concert in 2007 by Anne-Sophie Mutter and the Trondheim Soloists Chamber Orchestra, who generously donated their fees in support of the Learning & Participation programme of the National Concert Hall.

  • The competition is open to young classical string players of violin, viola, cello or double-bass;
  • Candidates must be Irish or living in Ireland;
  • Candidates must be between the ages of 13-17 as of the closing date.

The award may be used for further study or towards an instrument upgrade.

The panel may make one or two awards, at its discretion, to a maximum of €10,000.

Application deadline: Friday 3 May at 5pm.
