For nearly four decades, Kevin Austin has nurtured rising stars in the discipline of Electroacoustic Studies. In addition to being an inspiring educator, Kevin is also an avid supporter of accessible education and a generous philanthropist. Thanks to Kevin's generosity, his award recipients excel in many areas of electroacoustic art, such as performance, composition and recording. He has established numerous awards in support of our students, but none bear his name.
Our goal is to create an award that will give us a unique opportunity to recognize Kevin’s generosity in a meaningful way and highlight his contributions to the Department of Music and the Canadian electroacoustic community at large.
I have taken the lead in establishing the Kevin Austin Award, and continue contributing to the fund. I encourage all alumni and friends to extend their support, because every donation counts! Give today and help us ensure Kevin’s legacy.
