Nominations open for Music Educator Award

Know a music educator who deserves some recognition? Nominate them for the new Classic FM Music Educator Award!

As part of the station’s 50th anniversary celebration, it will be spotlighting local music educators who are dedicated to sustaining the performing arts and have had a strong positive influence on their students. Anyone can nominate a music educator by filling out a nomination form available on WCNY’s website. A WCNY committee will review nominations and select a new honoree at least monthly starting in September 2022.

Award winners will be announced live on Classic FM, and the honoree will receive a plaque presented by a WCNY representative during a music class or other appropriate gathering. The educator will also be given the opportunity to bring an ensemble to the WCNY studios in Syracuse to record a brief performance that will air on Classic FM.
