TMC Orchestra finalist for two awards

Posted

The Texas Medical Center Orchestra has been chosen as a finalist for two awards, The American Prize in community orchestra division and the Ernst Bacon Memorial Award for performance of American music in the community ensemble division for the 2019-2020 season.

The American Prize involves several non-profit national competitions in the performing arts and offers cash awards, professional adjudication and regional, national and international recognition for recorded performances. The prize is awarded to ensembles and individuals annually in the U.S. at the professional, university, church, community and secondary school levels.

The Ernst Bacon Award recognizes and rewards the best performances of American music by ensembles and individual artists worldwide. The award is named after Ernst Bacon, an American composer who won a Pulitzer Scholarship and three Guggenheim Fellowships.

Exact dates for both awards’ results have yet to be announced.
