The Michael Hill International Violin Competition Fellowship programme has been developed to encourage and support New Zealand-based emerging violinists who are studying at a high performance level with the intention of making violin performance their career.
This year, six fellows have been hand-picked to benefit from an accelerated enrichment programme alongside the Michael Hill International Violin Competition event.
In addition to attending rehearsals and performance heats throughout the competition, these Kiwi violinists will partake in masterclasses led by Competition judges, rehearse and perform alongside competitors and other leading New Zealand musicians, including the premiere of a new violin trio.
Fellows will also get extended ‘behind the scenes’ professional training by writing programme notes, presenting the popular daily pre-concert Insiders’ Guide talks, and writing for our highly anticipated Keep Up with the Play daily blog.
The Fellowship programme is led by James Jin and supported by The Adam Foundation.
