This is an exciting weekend at the Hermitage. The Greenfield prize jury comes into town and meets tomorrow morning (January 15th) at the Hermitage to determine the winner of the 2012 Greenfield Prize in Music. This prize includes a $30,000 commission; a residency at the Hermitage; partnership with a professional musical organization to help develop the commission and to give it its first public exposure; and support for other performances nationally to have the work heard by many other audiences.
