Now through March 4, the League of American Orchestras is accepting nominations for the 2019 Ford Musicians Awards for Excellence in Community Service. Currently in its fourth year, the Ford Musicians Awards program, made possible through the generosity of Ford Motor Company Fund, celebrates and honors professional orchestra musicians who provide exemplary and meaningful service in their communities and make a significant impact through education and community engagement. Musicians may apply by themselves, or an orchestra may apply on the musician’s behalf. The application deadline is Monday, March 4, 2019. Five musicians will be selected through a competitive application process. Each winner will receive a cash award of $2,500, complimentary registration for the League’s National Conference in Nashville in June 2019, roundtrip airfare to Nashville, and hotel accommodations. The winning musician’s orchestra will receive a grant of $2,500 to support professional development for its musicians. One staff member from the orchestra will receive complimentary registration for the League’s National Conference, roundtrip airfare to Nashville, and hotel accommodations.
