Dittamo Wins Composition Fellowship

Composer Patrick Dittamo has won the first annual Shawms and Stories Composition Fellowship, which consists of a commission to write incidental music for The Really Awful Musicians by John Manders, a children's book that features historical instruments.  The new composition will comprise half of Shawms & Stories, a storytelling outreach program for children aged 3-8 and their families that will tour schools, libraries, and community centers in south-central Indiana, made possible by the support of the Indiana Arts Commission, the Brown County Community Foundation, and the National Endowment for the Arts.  

 

The program was created by Forgotten Clefs, a historically-informed music ensemble and a 501(c)(3) organization based in Indiana, which promotes early music in the United States through performance, research, and educational outreach of pre-tonal musical traditions. They focus on music beyond the regular canon of classical music performances including both popular and art music from the Middle Ages and the Renaissance.  Their announcement can be found here.
