Charles Hennen Competition and Prix Charles Hennen
The Charles Hennen Competition 2013 was originally planned for April. Organizing a full blown competition was not possible given the recent merger with the Orlando Festival.
In corroboration with Heerlen and the government an alternative competition was held this year during the Orlando Festival. During the Orlando Master Class five quartets were being judged.
The Armenian- Russian Nairi Quartet received the Prix Charles Hennen form the mayor of Heerlen.
