Poister Competition

The Arthur Poister Scholarship Competition celebrates the rich legacy of Arthur Poister through recognition of outstanding young artists in the U.S. and Canada. Since 1975, organists at the collegiate and early professional level have competed in Syracuse, NY. Winners are selected by a panel of judges and awarded prize money and recitals on Syracuse Unversity’s Walter Holtkamp Organs, including the famous Holtkamp instrument in the Setnor Auditorium.
