In addition to the quadrennial Competition and its performances, accompanying exhibits and presentations, the IVCI sponsors an annual concert series. This Laureate Series features prize winners of past Competitions and special guest artists. Our presence in the Indianapolis cultural scene is further enhanced by our Laureate's solo and chamber music performances with the Indianapolis Chamber Orchestra, Ronen Chamber Ensemble, and the Indianapolis Symphony Orchestra.
Educational activities encompass a broad range of performances and "informances" including the International Violinists in Schools program, student field trips to the Competition, master classes and residencies for youth orchestras and schools and the Juried Exhibition of Student Art, a statewide multi-disciplinary approach in visual art education.
A commitment to building audiences has been the basis of relationships with Butler University's Jordan College of Fine Arts, the Metropolitan Youth Orchestra and Arts for Learning, the Indiana Affiliate of Young Audiences. We work together with these organizations to present our Laureates in master classes, school concerts and educational demonstrations throughout central Indiana. We also provide free or deeply-discounted tickets for the Laureate Series to their memberships.
