NY Philharmonic Very Young Composers Win ASCAP Award

Posted December 13, 2019

Just when we thought we couldn’t be prouder of them: two New York Philharmonic Very Young Composers — Ilaria Loisa Hawley (age 10) and Jordan Millar (age 13) — are among the youngest recipients honored with an ASCAP Foundation Morton Gould Young Composer Award. Bestowed on composers between the ages of 10 and 30, the honor is dedicated to the memory of the former ASCAP president and Pulitzer Prize–winning composer whose first composition was published when he was only six years old.

The Philharmonic premiered Ilaria’s This Element That Questions a Woman in May 2019 and Jordan’s Boogie Down Uptown in January 2018. Jordan’s was reprised in front of tens of thousands at the 2018 Concerts in the Parks.

Congratulations, Ilaria and Jordan!
