The Alex Lindsay Award trust is administered by seven trustees, all of whom are current players in the NZSO. They convene each year in August 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.
Awards of up to $10,000 are granted annually. The number of recipients and monetary value of the awards may vary from year to year.
