Every year the jury will select two winners, one for each session, for which Amici della Musica undertakes to stipulate two contracts for concerts to be held in the following concert season. 

The economic value of the performance-contracts will be of Euro 2.000,00 for soloists and up to Euro 4.000,00 for chamber group.

By accepting the prize, winners undertake to guarantee the concerts assigned: if they do not fulfill this commitment, the prize will be canceled and eventually assigned to another soloist or chamber group indicated by the Jury.

Particularly deserving artists will be reported to national and international concert societies to promote their concert activity and career.

The artistic relationship with Amici della Musica di Verona may also be extended in the following years for other productions and may also concern non-awarded artists, who have received a recommendation from the Jury.

The prizes will be awarded in memory of the Masters Guido Begal, Laura Palmieri, Juan Carlos Rybin, Paolo Rigoli, and other important artistic figures that have determined the musical life of Verona and contributed to the centennial history of our association.
