Please Note: The American Music Research Center regrets to announce that due to the COVID-19 outbreak and the closing of the CU Libraries, the 2020 George Lynn Award has been suspended until further notice. We will be back in touch with the CU community about new application procedures when the Libraries have reopened and the AMRC archives are once again accessible. We appreciate the interest and creativity of the many student researchers who have contacted us and look forward to reopening the Award process as soon as possible.
The George Lynn Memorial Award for Research and Performance
The American Music Research Center and members of the Lynn family invite CU student musicians, both graduates and undergraduates, who are planning to perform or undertake research related to George Lynn’s music, to apply for the annual George Lynn Award.
This award comes with a $1000 prize and supports work that takes place from May 2020 - April 2021. After completion of the project the award winner is expected to submit a short report summarizing the work and research accomplished.
Activities eligible to receive this award include:
Public performances or recitals of Lynn’s extensive catalogue of vocal, instrumental chamber, choral, or orchestral music.
Recording projects of all kinds related to the above in the coming year.
Research or prospective publications that use primary sources related to Lynn’s career as a conductor, teacher and composer [such as personal family scrapbooks].
Interested candidates are asked to e-mail the completed application form to firstname.lastname@example.org.
