February 23, 2021

Composer Wang Lu, a David Josephson Assistant Professor of Music at Brown University, won the Wladimir and Rhoda Lakond Award in Music from the Academy of Arts and Letters in recognition of her artistic excellence as a composer. According to the press release from the Academy, "this $10,000 prize in music composition was established through a bequest from Wladimir and Rhoda Lakond...[and] will be presented virtually at the Academy’s Ceremonial on May 19, 2021."

On Professor Lu's website, her work is described as "music that reflects a very natural identification with influences from traditional Chinese music, urban environmental sounds, linguistic intonation and contours, and freely improvised traditions, through the prism of contemporary instrumental techniques and new sonic possibilities."

Congratulations, Lu, on this impressive and well-deserved achievement!
