Mazzariello wins McKnight Fellowship for Composers

21 June 2017

Andrea Mazzariello, visiting Assistant Professor of Music, has won a prestigious McKnight Fellowship for Composers from the American Composers Forum. This award will allow him to compose new concert music for performance by leading contemporary music ensembles; to write new work for himself to play in a unique setup that involves keyboard, drums, voice, and electronics; and to compose new music with youth in and around Northfield. One of the oldest and largest of its kind in the country, the McKnight Foundation’s arts program has supported individual working artists in Minnesota since 1981, providing annual, unrestricted cash awards to outstanding mid-career Minnesota artists in ten different creative disciplines.
