Copland House Residency Awards 2019

Copland House announces the 2019 Copland House Residency Awards. Typically, eight to ten emerging or mid-career composers (American citizens or permanent residents) are selected to live and work, one at a time, for approximately three to eight weeks at Aaron Copland’s National Historic Landmark home in New York’s lower Hudson River Valley, one hour north of New York City. Accommodations, meals, housekeeping, and local transportation are provided by Copland House. Composers writing in any genre and small collaborative teams are welcome to apply. Residencies will be scheduled between November 1, 2019 and October 31, 2020. Copland House Residents also become eligible for other opportunities, including the Sylvia Goldstein Award, various commissions, performance and recording opportunities, and other prospective honors. Composers may apply online (or, alternatively, with hard-copy), by submitting a Copland House Residency Awards application form, three representative works and recordings, resume, and brief description of the project(s) planned.
