Richard Paul Delong Prize

Last night, the Yale Institute of Sacred Music hosted their annual graduation banquet, where all members of the ISM gather to celebrate the end of another year, give certificates to graduates, and award prizes and scholarships.  Last year, I was fortunate to win the Hugh Porter Scholarship, “awarded to a student of exceptional promise and achievement.”  This year, I am humbled to say I won the Richard Paul Delong Prize, “awarded to an exemplary church musician.”  I must say… it’s in my blood.  I felt blessed to have my dad there with me; he, along with my mom, graduated from the ISM in the 70s, and I would never have won this award if they hadn’t modeled excellent church musicianship my whole life.
