Blake Logan is an awardee of the Dolores '54 and Donald '57 White Prize.

Blake will present a performance titled "Out of Silence: Visionaries of Sound Old and New". This program features the music of Dolores White and other female and Black composers whose work is similarly visionary. Ranging from America to Poland and Iceland, this recital traces a thread of tradition and innovation through all its works.

Prizes are awarded for performance-based projects demonstrating students’ commitment to supporting diversity, equity, inclusion and belonging in music and commitment to excellence in music performance. The 2022-23 academic year is the inaugural year of the prize awards.  Learn more. [LINK: https://www.oberlin.edu/news/oberlin-conservatory-launches-dolores-54-and-donald-57-white-prize]
