The Harvey G. Phillips Awards were established by ITEA to foster, encourage, and recognize excellence in the field of composition. These awards recognize the very best composers who have produced work of the highest distinction and are indeed given to those whose work illustrates the highest level of artistry, regardless or popularity or other factors.
Information for the next cycle of Phillips Awards will be posted soon.
