Two Curtis alumni, David Hertzberg (Composition ’15) and Yevgeniy Sharlat (Composition ’01), were awarded Guggenheim Fellowships in the field of music composition. Says the John Simon Guggenheim Memorial Foundation, fellows were “appointed on the basis of prior achievement and exceptional promise, the successful candidates were chosen through a rigorous peer-review process from almost 3,000 applicants.”

Mr. Hertzberg (pictured left) will soon release a recording of his award-winning opera The Wake World. Dr. Sharlat is associate professor of composition at the University of Texas at Austin.
