Jasmine Hogan (BM ’11 Harp, MM ’14, Harp/Pedagogy) has won the Presser Award for 2015. Hogan will use the $10,000 that comes with the award to realize her vision of commissioning a set of new compositions based on the children’s poems by Federico García Lorca that were originally featured in George Crumb’s Federico’s Little Songs for Children, for Harp, Flute and Voice. Hogan will invite seven different composers to collaborate on this project, one for each of the original Lorca poems. One of the composers will be Peabody faculty member David Smooke, who studied with Crumb. Hogan is currently an Artist Diploma candidate at Peabody.
