Michael Ludwig Nemmers Prize in Music Composition


The Michael Ludwig Nemmers in Music Composition will be awarded to a classical music composer who shows the highest level achievement in a body of work and a unique creativity. Composers must be nominated, preferably by recognized authorities in the field of classical music, such as prominent artists, critics, scholars, or administrators, via a letter to the Selection Committee. Should the winner not have an orchestral composition, appropriate chamber groups from the Symphony will be utilized. The winner must be available for a two- to three-week residency at Northwestern University (the weeks may be non-consecutive) and able to interact with faculty and students. A cash allowance will be provided to the winner to cover expenses connected with the residency.
