MM candidate Tia Price Receives Presser Award

Master of Music candidate Tia Price was chosen as the winner of this year’s Presser Award. The voice student will receive a grant of $10,000 to fund an innovative project combining Peabody Preparatory’s Tuned-In program and Natalie Draper, a Doctoral in Musical Arts candidate in composition, in the commission of a song cycle. The cycle will be based on texts from the Tuned-In students on the theme “This is my Voice” and will be performed throughout Baltimore in churches and other local venues. An audio and video recording will be created to document the project.
