In 2010-2011, the Fischoff Winner?s Tour will take a different and exciting turn. Both Gold Medal winners from the Senior Division of the 2010 Fischoff Competition, the Old City String Quartet and the Angeles Saxophone Quartet, will be invited back for a new Double Gold Tour. This is an enlargement of the annual Grand Prize Winner’s Midwest Tour and will include concerts, masterclasses, workshops and children?s programs for both the top Fischoff winners.

The Old City String Quartet outreach will concentrate on high school string programs in the area, while the Angeles Saxophone Quartet will present music workshops and feature Niki Daly?s book, Ruby Sings the Blues, for Fischoff?s S.A.M. I Am programs to several elementary schools in our community.

Additionally, during the summer of 2011, the Old City String Quartet will travel to Italy to participate in the Emilia Romagna Festival. Fischoff and the Emilia Romagna Festival have formed a collaboration that makes it possible for the Fischoff Grand Prize Winner to participate in the annual summer music festival. Concerts are presented throughout the Emilia Romagna region of Italy in unique venues, including historic buildings, great homes, churches, and even courtyards. The tour provides wonderful opportunities, experiences and connections for these talented young chamber musicians.
