The selection committee, headed by Professor Anne Shih, will choose 55 outstanding students for 2013.
In addition 2013 will see the first year of a new mentoring program for our young masters and juniors. 15 students will be selected to work intensively with our young masters, chosen from the 55 outstanding young participants, on all aspects of technique, musicianship and will be advised on personal and career development choices. Each of these 15 juniors will also be invited to play in special masterclasses on pedagogy given by our faculty and given the opportunity to perform in a final concert. They may also elect to have three lessons with a professor of their choice.
Our young masters are amongst the most outstanding new classical talents in the world. In years to come you will start recognising their names when they appear on stages the world over. Some of the students already enjoy a great deal of success and you can see/hear some of their performances via the Students section of the site.
