Knapp Award

Choral music is constantly evolving and changing, thanks to the genius of very talented composers and musicians.  Our organization wishes to benefit those who would further such a fine art form by allowing us to help and reward them.

We present to you, the Knapp Award, for choral composition excellence.  Every season, Meistersingers wishes to unveil a new choral work.  Composers will present their work in a competition, the winner of which will receive:

  • $500
  • at least one performance by Meistersingers
  • archival recording for use toward publishing

We are excited to unveil this new format.  If you are a composer who would love to have us view his/her work and are interested in participating, contact us at director@meistersingers.org for more information. 

The The Knapp Award program in honor of Jim and Sally Knapp who have helped Meistersingers in so many ways.
