AWMA Artistic Excellence Award 2022

AWMA Artistic Excellence Award 2022
November 21, 2018 Jacqueline

Congratulations to Elena Kats-Chernin on receiving the Artistic Excellence Award, at the Australian Women in Music Awards, 2022 in Brisbane!

A new work by Elena Kats-Chernin, celebrating the ‘gutsy and strong’ women in Australia’s music industry, will also be a celebratory feature performance at the AWMAs on 18 May in Brisbane’s Tivoli Theatre.

Elena Kats-Chernin’s new composition, titled Jubilissima, will be premiered at the AWMA ceremony in May. The piece has been especially commissioned for this year’s awards as “a hugely appropriate and uplifting addition to the performances on Awards night”.(Vicki Gordon,  AWMA’s Founding Executive Producer). Kats-Chernin said the name Jubilissima is her own invented word that evokes the celebration and her own sense of the gutsy, strong women in the music industry, and will be performed with Australian Brandenberg Orchestra’s Principal Trumpet Leanne Sullivan, an award-winning artist of both modern and baroque trumpet.

The premiere of Kats-Chernin’s work sits alongside her nominations as a finalist for AWMA’s ‘Artistic Excellence’ Award and the ‘Excellence in Classical Music’ Award.

“AWMA is such an important initiative that draws attention to the extraordinary work of leading creative women in Australia. I’m delighted to be part of such significant award that highlights and celebrates women’s achievements. I’m always amazed at the incredible power of women when they work together to create something new.”Elena Kats-Chernin
