Congratulations to the three Columbians recently named 2015 Music Award Winners by the American Academy of Arts and Letters:
Jason Eckardt (DMA 1998) will be awarded a Charles Ives Fellowships, of $15,000. Harmony Ives, the widow of Charles Ives, bequeathed to the Academy the royalties of Charles Ives' music, which has enabled the Academy to give the Ives awards in composition since 1970.
Alex Mincek (DMA 2011) will receive the Benjamin H. Danks Award of $20,000 for an young composer of ensemble music.
