Recent News and Notes
Distinguished Composer in Residence George Tsontakis has been the recipient of the two richest prizes awarded in all of classical music: the 2005 international Grawemeyer Award for his Second Violin Concerto and the 2007 Charles Ives Living Award, awarded every three years by the American Academy of Arts and Letters. He studied with Roger Sessions at Juilliard and with Franco Donatoni in Rome. Born in Astoria, New York, into a strongly Cretan heritage, he has in recent years become an important figure in the music of Greece.
