The Curt Sachs Award
Named for one of the founders of the modern systematic study of musical instruments, the Curt Sachs Award was established by the American Musical Instrument Society to honor those who have made important contributions toward the goals of the Society. The Award may be made annually at the discretion of the Society's Board of Governors. The recipient of the Award is given a certificate, signed by the President of the Society, which summarizes the recipient's contributions to the study of musical instruments. The name of the awardee will be announced in the Society's Newsletter, Journal, and website. The recipient will be invited to attend the Society’s next annual meeting and to address those in attendance. No more than one Award may be bestowed during any calendar year. Nominations should be submitted by the preceding December 31st.
