The objective of the award is to offer a composer the resources to refine a work in order to generate a more definitive and satisfactory version for inclusion in a recording and future performances.
The Harry Freedman Fund was established by the Freedman family to commemorate the pioneering Canadian composer. The fund offers the Award every second year to a Canadian composer working in collaboration with one to six musicians, or a Canadian composer-performer. The award will contribute to the creative costs (rehearsal and editing of a piece), or the recording costs, associated with making audio recordings of Canadian composers’ music for a confirmed future commercial release—in any physical and/or digital format.
The Harry Freedman Recording Award is valued at $3,000 Canadian.
