RZ Memorial Prize Awarded at McGill University
on 2/4/14To mark the first anniversary of the SABIAN founder’s passing, the Robert Zildjian Memorial Prize was awarded on Friday March 28, during the Percussion Ensemble concert, held at McGill University. This prize, worth $3,000, was created in the memory of Robert Zildjian, the founder of the Sabian cymbal company, who passed away March 28, 2013. Robert Zildjian’s wife Willi, son Andy Zildjian, daughter Sally Zildjian Teague, granddaughter Bess Teague and grandson Harry Teague BA’16 were at Pollack Hall on Friday night to award the prize on the first anniversary of his passing. We congratulate the 2014 co-recipients of the prize, Bryn Lutek BMus ‘16 and Colin Frank BMus’15, both current percussion students. They were chosen for their progress, dedication and involvement in the percussion studio and in the School’s ensembles.
