CC's Susan Grace Honored with 'Force for the Arts' Award

Susan Grace, a lecturer and artist-in-residence with Colorado College's music department, was honored at the 30th annual Arts Business Education Awards celebrating Colorado Springs community members who contribute to the arts in education. Grace, who received a Pikes Peak Arts Council "Force for the Arts" award, has been director of the Colorado College Summer Music Festival since 1989. Since then, the quality of faculty and student performances, the ever-growing audiences and the full-scholarship status for all students, have propelled the festival to national recognition. The Summer Music Festival celebrates its 25th anniversary this summer and has commissioned a new symphony to commemorate the event.
