Each year outstanding young musicians (ages 14-25) with disabilities from around the world receive the VSA International Young Soloists Award ($2,000) and the opportunity to perform at the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts in Washington, D.C. This program is open to soloists and ensembles of all genres.
Disability is a broad umbrella that covers a variety of lived experiences. Eligible musicians may have visible, physical, and/or sensory conditions, as well as less visible conditions like anxiety, ADHD, depression, chronic illness/pain, PTSD, OCD, dyslexia, dysgraphia, neurodivergence, and more.
