Jerome Hynes Composers’ Competition

This award is for the commission of a new work for mezzo-soprano and piano. As part of the commissioning process, the composer has the unique opportunity to work collaboratively with the 2014 Bernadette Greevy Bursary Awardee on this new work. The new work will be premiered during the Bernadette Greevy Bursary Recital in autumn 2015, giving the young composer a platform to showcase their talent.
Application form will be available from late January 2015.

Young Musicians’ Award

The Young Musicians Award at the National Concert Hall supports the development of talented young string musicians in Ireland. This biannual award provides bursaries for young musicians up to a total of €10,000 which may be used toward tuition, instrument upgrade, travel or other costs faced by student musicians as they develop their potential.

ParaMusica Award

The ParaMusica award recognises the achievements of musicians with disabilities.  Each year, one talented musician is awarded a bursary of €3,500 to assist with tuition, instrument upgrade or other costs associated with their musical career.

The ParaMusica award is open to musicians in any genre, who may apply as a soloist, or as an individual within an ensemble or band.
