The award recognizes professional musicians and the deeply impactful work they do outside the concert hall, much of it virtual this year due to the pandemic. Honorees were selected through a competitive application process; each musician receives a cash award of $2,500. The musician’s orchestra receives a grant of $2,500 to support professional development for its roster of musicians.
