Robert Rosen Memorial Award
Highly-regarded Canadian composer, Robert Rosen (1956 – 2018), was a former student of Violet Archer and former clinician for the Young Composers Program. His prairie heritage and mountain roots gave both grandness and nuance to his compositions.
We are honoured to present this memorial award to a senior student in the Young Composers Program.
