CAG Announces new award for Innovation

Concert Artists Guild is proud to continue our strong tradition of supporting innovative artists by announcing a new award, open to both current CAG roster artists and alumni.

The $5,000 Richard S. Weinert Award for Innovation in Classical Music will be given to an artist or ensemble with an outstanding proposal for a distinctive project. CAG is indebted to President Emeritus Richard S. Weinert for his service to CAG since 2000, and we are proud to offer this award in honor of him.

The award will be given to one artist or ensemble per year. Eligible projects can be new or ongoing, but new projects must have started by the end of the following season.

Applications open – now
Application deadline – Friday, March 15, 2019

If you are a current CAG artist of a member of our alumni and are interested in applying for this award, please contact our Manager of Artistic Programs, Jessica Lightfoot.
