SRQ DAILY FRIDAY WEEKEND EDITION FRIDAY AUG 30, 2019

The Hermitage Artist Retreat and the Aspen Music Festival and School (AMFS) have announced that Chelsea Komschlies, a composition student at the Susan and Ford Schumann Center for Composition Studies at the AMFS, has been awarded the 2019 Hermitage Prize. She receives a six-week residency at the Hermitage, along with a $1,000 stipend for travel and food expenses. Komschlies was selected by a jury that included Alan Fletcher, AMFS president and CEO of the AMFS; Robert Spano, music director at the AMFS and the Atlanta Symphony; and Chris Theofanidis, a composition faculty member at AMFS. All three are Hermitage fellows. First awarded in 2013, the Hermitage Prize is given to a promising composer who is enrolled as a composition student at AMFS. The residency is the only one the Hermitage grants to an artist who is just embarking on his or her career.
