The Noah Greenberg Award

The Noah Greenberg Award was established by the Trustees of the New York Pro Musica Antiqua in memory of their founder and first director. The award is intended as a grant-in-aid to stimulate active cooperation between scholars and performers by recognizing and fostering outstanding contributions to historical performing practices. Both scholars and performers may apply, since the Award may subsidize the publication costs of articles, monographs, or editions, as well as public performance, recordings, or other projects.

The award is given annually. The winner receives a monetary prize ($2,000) and a certificate, conferred at the Annual Business Meeting and Awards Presentation of the Society by the chair of the committee.

application instructions

The Noah Greenberg Award Committee invites applications for the award, to be received by 15* August . Applicants need not be members of the Society. The applicant must submit a description of the project, a detailed budget, and supporting materials such as articles or recordings of performances which are relevant to the project.

The online application form will be available on this page around mid-June.

*Note: Should the deadline fall on a weekend or holiday, the deadline will be the next business day following the weekend or holiday.


The public announcement of the award is made at the Awards Presentation of the Society, held each fall at the Annual Meeting. Only the award recipient is explicitly notified of the decision prior to the public announcement. The award notification is made about six weeks before the meeting, so that travel plans may be made.
