Copland House Announces 2013 Residency Winners
Reflecting on his Copland House stay earlier this year, David Hertzberg wrote, "the weeks I spent there were utterly transformative - a remarkably fruitful time for me creatively [and] truly spiritually rejuvenating, as well. I know I will continue to look back on it as an important and even somewhat charmed time in my musical life." Copland House Residencies occupy the House for 42 to 45 weeks throughout the year, and are among the organization's core programs. To date, Copland House has hosted residencies for over 125 composers from nearly 30 states and 4 countries. Works created during Copland House stays have won awards from ASCAP, BMI, the American Composers Orchestra, Minnesota Orchestra, European American Music Alliance, Boston Modern Orchestra Project, and many others, and have been premiered by leading artists and performing organizations around the world.
An Official Project of the federal Save America's Treasures program, Copland House is the only composer's home in the U.S. devoted to nurturing and renewing America's rich musical heritage through a broad range of creative, educational, and performance programs.
