Last evening at the Stanley H. Kaplan Penthouse, composer Ashley Fure (seventh from left) received a Lincoln Center Award for Emerging Artists, which recognizes extraordinary talent around the campus. Her award has the added designation as the Hunt Family Award, endowed by Lincoln Center Trustee David Hunt.
Ms. Fure was nominated by both the New York Philharmonic and Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts. The World Premiere of her Filament, commissioned by the Philharmonic, opened our 2018–19 season, becoming the first piece conducted by Jaap van Zweden as Music Director.
Past Philharmonic-nominated winners include Philharmonic Kravis Emerging Composer Anna Thorvaldsdottir (2018), Concertmaster Frank Huang (2017), and composer Julia Adolphe (2016).
