Congratulations to 2021–22 Luna Lab fellow Alicia Erlandson, who was just awarded the 2022 G. Schirmer Prize for Luna Composition Lab for her string quintet “Windowpane.”
“Alicia Erlandson’s piece Windowpane dazzled us when it premiered at the 2022 Luna Composition Lab Festival. It was immediately apparent that Alicia is an artist with an unfettered imagination, a composer capable of creating textured, delicate and surprising soundscapes that reflect her own unique take on the world.” —Missy Mazzoli and Ellen Reid
