The Aviv Competitions were founded by America-Israel Cultural Foundation and provide vital support and exposure to top-tier musicians to help propel their careers to the next level. Early career musicians perform before panels of distinguished professional judges in their field, critics, and audiences, providing them with invaluable exposure and access to leading members of the industry, media, and the general public. The Aviv Competitions are a springboard for the development of the contestants’ careers. Winners in each category receive a $6,000 prize, as well as Performance Prizes, Professional Mentoring Support, and a Recording Prize.
This year, musicians between the ages of 21-33 will compete in the following categories: piano | cello | brass | voice
