The Alex Lindsay Award trust is administered by seven trustees, all of whom are current players in the NZSO. They convene each year in October to assess the applicants’ recorded auditions and to review any supporting written materials. This closely resembles the audition process for a position in a professional symphony orchestra.
The number of recipients and monetary value of the awards is dependent upon the calibre of applicants as well as the sum available from interest earned on the capital funds in the previous financial year.
