Washington, U.S.A. — The S&R Foundation, a non-profit organization that supports talented individuals with high aspirations in the arts and sciences, announced on December 10, the winners of the 2012 S&R Washington Award. The S&R Washington Award was established in 2001 to recognize talented young artists who contribute to international cultural understanding through the fine arts, music, drama, dance, photography, and film.
“The four recipients of the 2012 S&R Washington Award represent a variety of artistic talents, but all encompass the international understanding that is a key component of the S&R Foundation’s core mission. We are proud to recognize this elite group of artists,” said Dr. Sachiko Kuno, president of S&R Foundation. “Over the past year we’ve had the opportunity to introduce past Washington Award winners to sold out audiences and respected music critics through the Overtures Concert Series. We look forward to supporting the 2012 winners in furthering their careers.”
The S&R Washington Award recipients for 2012 are:
Award recipients receive a $5,000 prize to support their emerging careers. Many previous Washington Award winners have performed at the S&R Foundation-hosted Overtures Concert Series with performances at The John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts, Terrace Theater and the Evermay estate. Beginning this March the 2013 Overtures Spring Concert Series will showcase world-class musicians, including several past Washington Award winners and many performers from last year’s sold out performances.
