W.K. Rose Fellowship Awarded to Rachel Panitch ’06

Rachel Panitch is a composer who is deeply interested in the way audiences engage with music. Her background as a performer, teacher and improviser has led to a level of experimentation, which enables audience members to find deeper meaning and connections between her music and experiences in their own lives. The W.K. Rose fellowship to provide a worthy young artist with a chance to be free after college to pursue his/her work as an artist is made possible by a bequest from the estate of W.K. Rose, a distinguished scholar and teacher who was a member of the Vassar English Department.
