July has Holley Hall buzzing yet again with young musicians lining up for Summer Music Camp! To our staff, there’s nothing quite as nostalgic as watching youngsters create musical memories.

Beginning with prizes for Best Orchestral Performance, Best Classical Vocal Solo, and Best Contemporary Classical Composition, in this year’s 64th celebration of music’s crème de la crème, the gilded gramophone was awarded in eight categories total (including the honor for Best Classical Instrumental Solo, the newest category created in 2012).
