© Jim Rolon (2012)
The annual award comes in the form of a commission ($7,000) and a performance subsidy. Ford will write an extended solo flute piece called Once upon a time there were two brothers for Sally Walker. Over the years, Ford has written solo works for piccolo (Les débris d'un rêve), alto flute (Spinning; Female nude) and bass flute (Becalmed), but never before for a C flute.
