The International Violin Competition of Indianapolis (IVCI) has received a generous grant from Lilly Endowment Inc. in the amount of $1 million to support the 10th Quadrennial International Violin Competition of Indianapolis. These funds are being used during a four-year period to support events and activities that point to and during the Competition itself, which will next be held in September 2018. Activities include professional development/career management for the Laureates (the top six from each competition), the seasonal IVCI Laureate Chamber Series, education programs and marketing initiatives.
The IVCI recognizes, rewards, and promotes the world's finest young classical violinists, and encourages understanding, appreciation, and support of the violin repertoire by a large and diverse audience. The IVCI utilizes its world prominence to bring international attention to Indianapolis, and maintains its efforts to be a visible and collaborative member of the arts communities in Indianapolis and Indiana.
