NH arts fellowships announced
The N.H. State Council on the Arts has announced the recipients of the 2013 Individual Artist Fellowships and Honorable Mentions in the area of performing arts.
Individual Artist Fellowships honor the excellence and professional commitment of New Hampshire artists who help make New Hampshire’s communities vibrant places to live, work and visit.
The statewide recognition that a Fellowship offers raises public appreciation of an artist’s work and increases opportunities for these professional artists to contribute more to their communities and to the creative economy of our state. As part of their Fellowship, recipients are required to hold four public events that engage people in a variety of settings with the goal of broadening the impact the artist has on communities.
Lawrence Siegel of Westmoreland was awarded an Individual Artist Fellowship. Siegel is an accomplished music composer, theater artist, scholar and performer, and the creative force behind “Kaddish,” a work for chorus, soloists and chamber orchestra that incorporates words taken directly from interviews with Holocaust survivors. Throughout his career, he has facilitated participatory, interdisciplinary residencies in the creation and performance of original works of music-theater, most recently as artistic director and founder of Tricinium, Limited, and director of its Verbatim Project. Siegel has received three fellowships from the MacDowell Colony, and received a fellowship in composition from Tanglewood in Massachusetts. As a three-time recipient of a State Arts Council Fellowship, Siegel will be inducted as a New Hampshire State Council on the Arts Lifetime Fellow. For more information, visit www.tricinium.com.
