The Hollier Award for 2023 is now CLOSED. This is a one-time audition and associated award ($500), and may involve playing with the orchestra at a future time at the Music Director’s discretion. (Click here for more info.) We ask applicants to prepare two short contrasting works, for example: one fast and one slow, or one slightly longer selection that contains fast passages and slower, more lyrical sections. Maximum time is 10 minutes, and auditions will be unaccompanied. Applicants must be entering at least grade 11 as of September 2023 to apply, and must be younger than 25 at the time of application.
Previous Hollier Award winners may not reapply.
