“The Honens International Piano Competition, based in Canada, prides itself on awarding accomplished pianists who are complete musicians. This may seem a lofty claim, but the Honens has a long list of thoughtful awardees to back it up.”—The New York Times
Every three years, a new Honens Prize Laureate is awarded Honens’ half-million dollar (CAD) Artist Development Program.
The program provides artistic and career guidance and support, including worldwide representation for three years, debut recitals in major career-building markets, residencies at Banff Centre for Arts and Creativity, production of a professional recording released globally on the Hyperion label, as well as valuable coaching and mentorship opportunities.
The Artist Development Program is underwritten by donations from Honens Laureate Circle Membership from across Canada and supported by RBC Emerging Artists Project.
