Frederick Loewe Symposium in American Music

To honor the University’s long tradition of celebrating American Music and Frederick Loewe’s support for the School of Music, we established the Frederick Loewe Medal for American Music in 2011. This award honors a clearly recognized statesman of American music for sustained contributions in composition, scholarship, and/or performance. The medal is presented in conjunction with the Frederick Loewe Symposium on American Music and recipients also participate in a weeklong residency designed to focus on the work of a senior figure in American music. Adding to the specialness unique to Redlands, the medal was created and cast in bronze by our very own professors of Art Raul Acero and Penny McElroy.
