HUDSON VALLEY STRING COMPETITION

The competition began in 1966 under the direction of Maestro Claude Monteux, then the HVP artistic director/conductor. It was originally started as a way to find string players for the orchestra. The competition has always attracted some of the finest conservatory string players in the world. Many former winners have gone on to illustrious classical music careers. Previous notables include: violist Marcus Thompson '67 (Boston Chamber Players), cellist Fred Sherry '68, violinist Ani Kavafian '73 (Lincoln Center Chamber Players soloist), violinist Adela Pena '85 (Eroica Trio), violinist Judith Ingolfsson ’96 (1998 Indianapolis International Violin Competition winner).

 

The prize includes a $3,000 First Prize and a solo performance with the Hudson Valley Philharmonic (HVP). The competition is steep and the winners have very promising careers ahead of them. This string competition gives the public a rare opportunity to hear and see some of the best young violinists, cellists, and violists in the world, before their careers have even begun. For more information email the Competition Chairperson Susan Avery.
