Copland House announces its 2012 Aaron Copland Awards composer residencies. Typically, six to nine 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, 2012 and October 31, 2013. 

Copland Awards residents also become eligible for the Sylvia Goldstein Award, Borromeo String Quartet Award, Hoff-Barthelson School/Copland House commission, and other prospective honors, performances, and opportunities.  Composers must submit a Copland Awards residency application form (downloadable), three representative works and recordings, resume, and brief description of the project(s) planned.
