The Mozart Society of America invites nominations for the Marjorie Weston Emerson Award, a $500 prize given annually for outstanding scholarly work on Mozart published in English during the two previous calendar years. The Award will be given in alternate years to books and editions, and to essays and articles. The 2013 Award will be for the best book or edition published in 2011 or 2012.
The selection will be made by a committee of Mozart scholars appointed by the President of the MSA, with approval from the Board of Directors.
Next nomination deadline TBA.
The award will be presented at the Society’s annual business meeting in the fall and announced in the Society’s Newsletter the following January.
The Society reserves the right not to award the prize in a given year.
