Annual Awards Luncheon

Who are the leaders you look to for innovation, knowledge and outstanding professionalism in the performing arts world? The APAP Awards Program is a long-standing tradition (and one of the most exciting APAP|NYC events!) that honors, celebrates and recognizes colleagues each year at the APAP|NYC conference. Which audience member will be surprised to learn he or she won the Fan Taylor Award? (It's the best-kept secret of APAP|NYC!) Which distinguished professional will receive the merit award, the advocacy award or the award for programmatic excellence?
The Young Performers Career Advancement Program (YPCA) supports classical musicians in the formative stages of their careers. All YPCA artists, selected through a competitive application process, will perform at Weill Recital Hall in Carnegie Hall in front of global arts leaders, performing arts presenters, managers, record company representatives and agents. Through a national partnership developed with the Sphinx Competition, APAP also provides an opportunity for a Sphinx Competition alumni artist or ensemble to participate in the program each year.
