Each year, Radius Ensemble commissions a Longy student as part of our residency at the Longy School of Music of Bard College.  This program is made possible by Jane and Neil Pappalardo.  Thank you, Jane and Neil!

The Pappalardo Composition Competition was created to give composition students the opportunity to hear their music performed by professional musicians.  Finalists, as selected by Longy composition faculty, receive a 30 minute workshop.  The winner, chosen by Radius Ensemble, earns a performance on a Radius subscription series concert.
