October 8, 2013
Kurt Rohde has received a Copland House Residency Award. Rohde is among eight American composers and five from Great Britain to receive the 2013 award. Among the American winners are Nicholas Omiccioli, a participant in UC Davis’s “Migration and Music” festival in 2013, as well as Christopher Theofanidis, whose piano quintet is to be performed by the Empyrean Ensemble as part of the Festival of New American Music (FeNAM) at Sacramento State University and on the Empyrean Ensemble’s November 22 concert at the Mondavi Center.
From Copland House’s October 8th press release:
The Residents will live and work, one at a time, at [Aaron] Copland’s rustic, hilltop home one hour north of Manhattan for stays ranging from three to eight weeks. There, they will be able to focus uninterruptedly on their creative work in the same bucolic, inspiring surroundings that Copland so enjoyed during the last 30 years of his life. As Copland House Residents, they will also become eligible for post-residency awards and performances that advance their work, including the Sylvia Goldstein Award, Borromeo String Quartet Award, Hoff-Barthelson Music School Commission, and others, and their work may be showcased in performance by the Music from Copland House ensemble.
