The 2020 Classical Music Indy Recording Fellowship awards two $2,500 fellowships to qualified and talented musicians. The program consists of a monetary award in the amount of $2,500 and full coverage of recording expenses for an EP-length album. In addition, the fellows receive professional development and growth opportunities through Classical Music Indy. The 2020 Classical Music Indy Recording Fellowship seeks to provide an opportunity for two outstanding musicians to engage in a top-of-the-line recording experience of their own choosing, while providing mentorship on developing a career in the recording industry. The 2020 Classical Music Indy Recording Fellows are Chloe Boelter and Corey Denham.
Chloe Boelter‘s project is to record a set of female-composed French and German art songs. The composers are all women whose works cover the late Classical era, through the Romantic period, and into the early 20th century.
Corey Denham‘s project is to record an album that will highlight a modern language of classical improvisation for flute and percussion with Jenna Page. This album will draw upon experiences and memories from specific landmarks around Indianapolis, recreating the atmosphere of these locations and connecting Indianapolis listeners to places they know and love.
