Annually, the Avery Fisher Artist Program bestows its prestigious award upon up to five instrumentalists or chamber ensembles, coupled with a generous $25,000 cash prize.

Established in 1974 by the late Avery Fisher as a philanthropic gesture to Lincoln Center, the program extends its support through the Avery Fisher Career Grants, assisting outstanding instrumentalists and chamber groups.

Among the 2024 recipients of the esteemed Avery Fisher Career Grant are the Balourdet Quartet, violinists Njioma Chinyere Grevious and Julian Rhee, pianist Clayton Stephenson, and the Sandbox Percussion ensemble. 

In addition to the financial award aimed at advancing their music careers, each winner will have the privilege of utilizing a professionally recorded performance from the award ceremony and will be presented with a specially designed rosette emblematic of the Career Grant.

With the inclusion of this year's grants, a total of 176 Career Grants have been bestowed since the program's inception in 1976. Nominees for the grants are selected by the Program's Recommendation Board, composed of distinguished instrumentalists, conductors, composers, music educators, managers, and presenters of national renown.
