Young Composers Awards 2003. (Competitions)
The National Guild of Community Schools of the Arts and The Hartt School at the University of Hartford are accepting applications for their Young Composers Awards 2003.
The senior winners receive the $1,000 Herbert Zipper Prize and a $500 prize, and the junior winners receive $500 and $250, respectively.
The Young Composers Awards were established by the late Herbert Zipper in 1985, initially with the support of the Rockefeller Foundation.
Zipper's distinguished international career as a composer and conductor, his lifetime commitment to music, youth and education, and his long service as a trustee of the National Guild are among the experiences that spurred his founding of the Guild's Young Composers Awards.
Since 1985, awards in the amount of $48,250 have been granted to seventy-six young composers.
The awards are currently made possible through the support of, among others, the Herbert Zipper Trust and the Foundations of the Milken Families.
Since 1998, The Ham School's Community Division and Composition Department has sponsored the Young Composers Awards in conjunction with the National Guild. …
