The Skaneateles Festival is proud to sponsor the annual Robinson Award. This prize was established in 2002 with the intent of honoring a high school student, age 13-18, who is an accomplished performer whose character, musicianship and community service reflects those treasured values of Festival founders, David and Louise Robinson: enthusiasm and dedication to music of the highest quality.
The winner will receive a $2,000 cash prize, with the presentation being made at a Skaneateles Festival concert. The recipient may also be invited to perform at a Festival event.
Applicants will be considered from the central New York area (Onondaga, Oswego, Cayuga, Tompkins, Madison, Oneida, and Cortland counties). The applicant should demonstrate a high level of commitment to his or her school music program, and/or the Skaneateles Festival.
