NYC-ARTS Spotlights 2017 Avery Fisher Career Grant Award-Winning Violinst Chad Hoopes

NYC-ARTS, Thirteen's weekly arts and culture multi-platform showcase, brings arts lovers an all-access pass to the interesting, unusual and unique cultural offerings of the greater New York City region. Each year, the world-renowned Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts administers The Avery Fisher Career Grant, a prestigious award given to up to five outstanding instrumentalists. The award is intended to give significant recognition and support to instrumentalists who show great potential for solo careers.

On September 7, NYC-ARTS presents a profile of violinist Chad Hoopes, a recipient of a 2017 Avery Fisher Career Grant Award.

At 22 years old, Hoopes has already received international acclaim, appearing with numerous ensembles throughout the world since he won the first prize at the Young Artists Division of the Yehudi Menuhin International Violin Competition.

"Our program spotlights those artists who have already made a name for themselves, as well as those just beginning to gain momentum," said Joan Hershey, Editorial Director of the series. "It's clear that Mr. Hoopes is a promising young instrumentalist, and we look forward to keeping an eye out for his continued success."

Co-hosted by New York Emmy Award winners Philippe de Montebello and Paula Zahn, with events around town reported by Ha, NYC-ARTS showcases both world-renowned and local, community-based arts organizations.
