The Golden Violin Award was established in 2006 by businessman and philanthropist Seymour Schulich, a year after he donated $20 million to McGill’s Schulich School of Music. The Golden Violin, made of pewter and gold plate, remains on permanent display in McGill’s Marvin  Duchow  Music  Library.  Its  recipient,  chosen by jury and a rigorous selection process receives a generous scholarship,  valued  this year at $25,000 as well as a smaller likeness of the violin in the form of  a 14-karat gold lapel pin.

This concert is presented as part of McGill Open House and will be webcast
