The Feuer String Competition was first held in 1964 as a tribute to Dorothy Farnham Feuer, founder of the Fairfax Symphony and a violinist with the orchestra. The string scholarship competition provides well-deserved recognition, encouragement, and financial support to outstanding young string performers. It is open to advanced string players in grades 7-12 in Northern Virginia. The Award money must be used to further the musical training of recipients, and is most often spent toward study with noted teachers, tuition for a summer camp, or the purchase of a new instrument. Many winners have continued to pursue music as private teachers and as members of orchestras through the nation, including the FSO.
