The Robinson Award

The Skaneateles Festival is proud to sponsor the annual Robinson Award. This prize was established with the intent of honoring a high school student, age 13-18, who is an accomplished performer whose character, musicianship and community service reflects those treasured values of Festival founders, David and Louise Robinson: enthusiasm and dedication to music of the highest quality.

The winner will receive a $1,500 cash prize, with the presentation being made at a Skaneateles Festival concert. The recipient may also be invited to perform at a future Festival event.

Applicants will be considered from the central New York area (Onondaga, Oswego, Cayuga, Tompkins, Madison, Oneida, and Cortland counties). The applicant should demonstrate a high level of commitment to his or her school music program, and/or the Skaneateles Festival.

Applications must include the following:

1) A Musical Recording
This should be unedited and feature 10-15 minutes of music. Include two contrasting styles of music (for example, Bach/ Brahms, Vivaldi/Copland, etc.). This should consist of works from the solo repertoire for your instrument (orchestral excerpts should not be included). Pieces written with accompaniment must be recorded that way for a more complete musical performance.

This can be submitted directly with your application via YouTube link or SoundCloud link.

2) A written "Personal Statement"
Please describe a meaningful musical experience and an explanation of why it was meaningful to you. Please also describe your future musical goals, as well. This piece should be no more than 500 words.

3) Two letters of recommendation from an adult, preferably at least one from a school or private music teacher.
The letters of reference must speak to the applicant's character and musicianship and the ways in which he or she reflects the values of the Robinson award: enthusiasm and dedication to music of high quality.

Letters of recommendation should be mailed to:

Skaneateles Festival
97 East Genesee Street
Skaneateles, NY 13152

or emailed to: music@skanfest.org

Applications should be submitted via the electronic application process linked below.
