MacDowell Music Club offers twelve music awards and runner-up awards each spring. These are listed below. All music awards are funded by donations and funds raised through special activities throughout the year. Additional awards may be added by private donations, and upon approval by the Board of Directors.
The Music Awards Chairman will schedule the auditions in the fall and send notice of time, place and rules to teachers who are members of MacDowell Music Club. A reminder notice will be sent to these teachers one month before the auditions. The Music Awards Review Committee has the responsibility for any major changes or innovations that may need to be make in the Music Awards Program from time to time with approval of the Board of Directors.
