Robert Frank, Music, was one of three composers nationwide to receive a Special Distinction citation in the 2008 ASCAP Foundation Rudolf Nissim Prize competition. The Nissim Prize is presented annually by The ASCAP Foundation in New York, to an ASCAP concert composer for a work requiring a conductor that has not been performed professionally. Frank was recognized for his composition Fast Falls the Eventide, a 12-minute orchestral work in one movement written for, and premiered by, the Meadows Symphony Orchestra conducted by Paul Phillips in 2004. The competition, which is judged by a jury of professional conductors, drew more than 315 entries from around the United States.
