Nestlé and Salzburg Festival
Young Conductors Award
The Nestlé and Salzburg Festival Young Conductors Award is an initiative supported by Nestlé and the Salzburg Festival. 2017 marks the eighth time that the award of € 15,000 will be conferred by an international jury.
The jury will narrow down the applicants to the top three final candidates, who shall conduct concerts at the Salzburg Festival on 4, 5 and 6 August 2017 with the Camerata Salzburg and a member of the Young Singers Project. The award winner will be announced after the concert on 6 August.
In addition to the classical and romantic repertoire, the interpretation of contemporary works will be an important consideration for the jury in its deliberations. The 2017 award winner will be given the opportunity to conduct a concert at the Salzburg Festival in 2018.
