Pianist Sarah Cahill is a recipient of the 2018 Champion of New Music Award from American Composers Forum (ACF) along with flutist, composer, educator Nicole Mitchell and Jim Staley, founder of the new music venue Roulette in Brooklyn, NY.
The Champion of New Music Award was established by the ACF Board of Directors in 2005 as a national mark of recognition to honor individuals or ensembles that have made a significant contribution to the work and livelihoods of contemporary composers. “Living composers are one of our greatest cultural assets”, says John Nuechterlein, ACF President and CEO, “and we want to be sure and thank those who are tireless in their support and promotion of new work.” Especially exciting this year is the opportunity to recognize three extraordinary people who have contributed in distinctive and different ways to the field of creative expression.
The awards will be presented at different public events in the coming months. For more information, visit www.composersforum.org
