High Honors For NOCCA Music Alum
NOCCA Classical Instrumental graduate Chris Trapani has been awarded a very prestigious composition award, the Berio Rome Prize. (please read below.) The Berio Rome prize is a much sought-after and highly distinguished composition award, comparable to the famous “Grand Priz de Rome” award in the late 19th and early 20th century that world-reknown composers such as Claude Debussy received.
Chris has been invited to return again to our campus sometime in the future to share with our students.
