Thomas Hampson Endowment for Research
By Song of America
The Thomas Hampson Endowment was established in November 2009 by Mr. Hampson in honor of the American Musicological Society’s OPUS Campaign and by the AMS in recognition of Hampson’s outstanding contributions to the field of music as a performer, teacher, and scholar. The purpose of the endowment is to foster editions and scholarship on song in all its contexts, as well as new and innovative technologies for promoting and understanding song via interactive media and the Internet. Guidelines for application to the endowment are currently in preparation. The first award is expected to be made in November 2010. For more information, please go to the AMS website.
