Ciro Zoppo
Research Fellowship

Bringing Lesser-known
Composers to Light

The Ciro Zoppo Research Fellowship, generously funded by Ms. Rosemary Zoppo, encourages the study and performance of the works of lesser-known composers with a $3,000 prize for a graduate student in Musicology. Students share their research in the form of a performance/lecture recital. Past winners and the associated concerts are as follows:
