Copland House


Copland House became operational in 1998, with the initiation of its Aaron Copland Awards composers’ residencies, Music from Copland House chamber ensemble, public and community programs, educational activities bringing students into contact with American music, and various recording, broadcast, and Internet projects. Copland House seeks to honor and preserve America's vibrant musical heritage, as it encourages the creation of new traditions. It welcomes all who wish to join on an historic journey to build a unique place where America's musical past and future meet.

The Copland House Residency Awards were inspired by Copland's exceptional legacy of support for his fellow composers. Based at Copland House, a National Historic Landmark and an Official Project of the federal Save America's Treasures program, the Copland House Residency Awards have earned nationwide recognition and esteem since they began in November 1998.

Typically, six to nine gifted, emerging or mid-career American composers each year are invited to reside, one at a time, at Rock Hill, Aaron Copland's restored, longtime New York home. There, they can focus on their creative work, free from the distractions of daily life and other professional responsibilities. As guests of Copland House for three to eight weeks, their meals, housekeeping, local transportation, and other needs are provided for.
