The Dianto Reed Quintet will get the opportunity to give a concert at the 2021 edition of the Grachtenfestival 2021, plus radio and television performances and a theatre tour in the 2021-2022 season. 

Harpist Joost Willemse was also a finalist. He received an honourable mention - as a substitute for the Audience Prize, which couldn’t be awarded this year - for the virtuosity and credibility of his performance.
