Percussionist Martin Grubinger, Univ. Prof. for Classical Percussion & Multipercussion at the Mozarteum University, will be awarded the Heidelberg Spring Music Prize, endowed with 10,000 euros, on April 5, 2023.

"The exceptional artist is thus being honored for his unparalleled services to introducing a young generation to music and his associated social commitment. The prize, which is unique in its form, is endowed with 10,000 euros and is donated by the founding partner of the Heidelberg Materials music festival.

Since 2013, the award has honored personalities who have made a substantial and lasting commitment to the communication of classical music. Vivi Vassileva, who is currently studying part-time with Martin Grubinger at the University Mozarteum Salzburg, will provide the musical framework for the award ceremony, together with the two percussionists Alex Georgiev and Jürgen Leitner."
