The 2010 Concert Artists Guild Victor Elmaleh Competition culminated Wednesday evening with the announcement of three winners at the Awards Showcase at the Kosciuszko Foundation. Awards went to pianist Michael Brown (First Prize & Victor and Sono Elmaleh Award), baritone Mischa Bouvier, and the Linden String Quartet. Each winner of the annual competition receives a two-year management contract and joins the CAG artist roster. The winners performed a short concert program for an enthusiastic audience of industry professionals and CAG supporters.
CAG’s mission is to discover, nurture and promote young musicians. Winners of its annual competition receive comprehensive career advancement services, including the booking of professional performance engagements, commissioning and recording opportunities, and marketing and publicity support.
