Among the countless artists who have been heard on The McGraw-Hill Financial Young Artists Showcase in the earliest stages of their careers are violinists Nadja Salerno-Sonnenberg, Joshua Bell, and Chee-Yun; cellist Matt Haimovitz; and pianist Orli Shaham. The weekly program regularly presents winners of such international competitions as the William Kapell, Vianna da Motta, and Jose Iturbi, as well as laureates of in-school auditions held at New York’s prestigious Juilliard, Manhattan, and Mannes music schools. To mark the 25th anniversary of the show, Harold McGraw III inaugurated the annual $10,000 Robert Sherman Award for Music Education and Community Outreach.
