Professor Zosha Di Castri and Bethany Younge Named 2023 American Academy of Arts and Letters Music Awards Winners

Zosha Di Castri has been named a 2023 American Academy of Arts and Letters Music Awards winner, as one of two recipients of the Goddard Lieberson Fellowship in Music alongside Andy Akiho. The fellowship was endowed in 1978 by the CBS Foundation to award exceptionally gifted mid-career composers. Bethany Younge, who is currently pursuing her DMA in Music Composition at Columbia University, was also named a recipient of the distinguished Charles Ives Scholarship.

This year's 16 recipients of the awards in music were selected by a committee of Academy members: Julia Wolfe (chair), Annea Lockwood, David Sanford, Christopher Theofanidis, Augusta Read Thomas, Chinary Ung, and Melinda Wagner. The awards will be presented at the Academy’s Ceremonial on May 24, 2023.

Congratulations, Zosha and Bethany!
