November 14, 2016 - What better way to celebrate eminent composer Aaron Copland’s 116th birthday (and the Supermoon!) than by sharing this news with you. Thank you, Copland House for this tremendous honor. Being the first Filipino to receive this award makes it even more meaningful.

"The Copland House Residency Awards were inspired by Copland's exceptional legacy of support for his fellow composers. Based at Copland House, a National Historic Landmark and an Official Project of the federal Save America's Treasures program, the Copland House Residency Awards have earned nationwide recognition and esteem since they began in November 1998."
"Typically, six to nine gifted, emerging or mid-career American composers each year are invited to reside, one at a time, at Rock Hill, Aaron Copland's restored, longtime New York home. There, they can focus on their creative work, free from the distractions of daily life and other professional responsibilities. As guests of Copland House for three to eight weeks, their meals, housekeeping, local transportation, and other needs are provided for."
