Call for Nominations
The Foundation welcomes nominations for the 2013 Kurt Weill Book Prize for distinguished scholarship in music theater since 1900 (including opera), for works first published in calendar years 2011 and 2012. Two 2013 Kurt Weill Prizes will be awarded: a cash prize of $5,000 to the author of the winning book entry; and a prize of $2,000 to the author of the winning article entry.
Media may include not only print (book, major scholarly article in a journal, chapter or essay, critical edition), but also audio-recording, video-recording, multi-media projects, and on-line publications, provided there is a tangible scholarly component. Edited multi-author collections of essays are not eligible in the book category, although single essays from such collections may be nominated in the article category. Works addressing the American music theater are particularly encouraged.
