Thursday, June 10, 2010
Jeremy Kittel has won the 2010 Emerging Artist in Music Award from the University of Michigan School of Music. This honor, bestowed annually, is awarded to a graduate from within the past fifteen years who has made “significant contributions in the field of music, theatre, or dance, and will have had a positive impact on the School of Music community, its curriculum, and its reputation.” Jeremy will travel in October from his current home in California back to the University to officially accept the award and participate in University events. Says Jeremy, “It’s inspiring and encouraging to be this year’s recipient. Many thanks to the wonderful community of teachers and students I was able to learn [from] and grow with during my time there.” This is the second honor Jeremy has received from his alma mater. The University of Michigan Stanley Medal was awarded to Jeremy Kittel in 2004. The Albert A. Stanley Medal, presented annually to the graduating senior who has been most outstanding in his or her curriculum, is the highest honor awarded by the School of Music.
