Awards Program Updates for 2022

NEW! Alice Parker Fund Award

New this year, Chorus America establishes the Alice Parker Fund Award to support the composition and thoughtful presentation of choral music based in the traditions of Black and Latinx communities. This award will be presented annually, recognizing the exemplary work of a Black or Latinx composer or an ensemble that respectfully and authentically presents works incorporating these traditions and experiences.

The Alice Parker Fund Award will alternate between recognizing an individual and organization from year to year; in its inaugural year, the award will recognize a Black or Latinx individual composer.

Additional Adjustments

With ongoing changes to performances and operations because of COVID-19, Chorus America will continue our pause on several awards that are difficult to adjudicate effectively and equitably due to COVID. We plan to resume our full Awards Program after updating award qualifications and requirements for FY23.
