North Shore Chamber Music Festival Announces Scholarship Recipients
The Arkady Fomin Scholarship Fund was created to celebrate the legacy of renowned violinist, teacher, and conductor Arkady Fomin
Created in 2015 by the North Shore Chamber Music Festival, the Arkady Fomin Scholarship Fund (AFSF) awards educational scholarships to talented international college and pre-college musicians, mentoring their artistic development and supporting them in the most formative years of their lives.
The 2023 recipients include:
Violinist Ava Pakiam
Violinist Madison Lin
Violinist Emrik Revermann
Violinist Hina Khuong-Hu
Pianist Davide Cava
The scholarship was founded in the name of violinist and longtime member of the Dallas Symphony, Arkady Fomin. He passed away in 2014, after serving as Artistic Director of the New Conservatory of Dallas and also the Conservatory Music in the Mountains Festival in Durango, Colorado, which he founded.
“Arkady knew how to give all of himself to his students, selflessly and wholeheartedly, his belief in the importance of music was inspiring and absolutely contagious. It is up to us to carry the torch that he has lit – and we do it with great pride,” violinist Vadim Gluzman said.
The award is made through a non-competitive process and applications are not accepted — although interested students are encouraged to send audio, video, or written material to inform the committee during the year. Candidates are vetted by an anonymous advisory committee that makes professional recommendations that closely align with the goals of the award.
