The violinists studied in the Academy with Almita Vamos and graduated in 2017 and 2018.  The mission of the International Violin Competition of Indianapolis (IVCI) is to recognize, reward and promote the world’s finest young classical violinists.  The Indianapolis was launched in 1982 under the artistic leadership of Josef Gingold to discover major violin talent and nurture the careers of those identified.
