The American Academy of Arts and Letters announced earlier this month 16 recipients of this year’s awards in music, which include Director of the LA Phil’s Nancy and Barry Sanders Composer Fellowship Program Andrew Norman, Composer Fellowship Program alumnus Saad Haddad and two LA Phil National Composers Intensive participants Katherine Balch and William Healy.
Andrew Norman is one of four composers who will each receive a $10,000 Arts and Letters Award in Music, which honors outstanding artistic achievement and acknowledges the composer who has arrived at his or her own voice. Each will receive an additional $10,000 toward the recording of one work.
Saad Haddad, along with one other composer, will receive a Charles Ives Fellowship of $15,000. Harmony Ives, the widow of Charles Ives, bequeathed to the Academy the royalties of Charles Ives’s music, which has enabled the Academy to give the Ives awards in composition since 1970.
Katherine Balch and William Healy, along with four other composers, will both receive Charles Ives Scholarships of $7,500, given to composition students of great promise.
The sixteen winners, whose awards total $195,000, were selected by a committee of Academy members. The awards will be presented at the Academy’s annual Ceremonial in May.
