Holmquest was the recipient of numerous awards, including a fellowship in the Juilliard Graduate School. This led to a career as a performer throughout the U.S. Holmquest was also known as a strong supporter of educational broadcasting, presenting recitals and commentaries for the University of Michigan Broadcasting Service.
