The League of American Orchestras and New Music USA recently announced the winners of the Music Alive: New Partnerships Residencies which include Cleveland Institute of Music alumni Dan Visconti and Rick Robinson. The twelve composers chosen (out of a pool of 219 applicants) will receive a $7,500 grant and will be matched with an orchestra of the committee’s choosing to work on an original piece from the composer. The piece will be performed by the orchestra at the end of the week-long residency.
Admission counselors and faculty read hundreds, often thousands, of student essays during the application review process. Make yours stand out for all the right reasons — show us why YOU are a perfect match for CIM.
The CIM application essay question requires a response that is 500-750 words long. Here are some tips for making every word count!
One final tip — do yourself a favor and START TODAY. Waiting till the last minute just adds unnecessary pressure. Rushing also makes you less likely to write an essay that genuinely represents you as an individual and artist and more likely to miss typos or grammar mistakes.
Of course, if you have any questions, don’t hesitate to email us at firstname.lastname@example.org or call to speak with an admission counselor at 216.795.3107.
