Artist in Residence

The winner of the Canal Festival Awards receives the title of Artist in Residence. During this residency, the winner is given the freedom to realize his or her musical dreams during the following edition of the Grachtenfestival. Being nominated for the Canal Festival Award is a great acknowledgement for the musicians, and with the opportunity to give their own concert during the festival, the nomination is already a gift in itself.

The Canal Festival Awards is part of the mission of the Canal Festival to present young, talented musicians to a broader audience. The talents are often invited to perform for several years, where they are given a stage that suits the phase of their career. For young musicians, a nomination for the Grachtenfestival Prize is an important boost to their careers.
