My fraternity Mu Phi Epsilon gave out four performance awards at the convention this year.
Joyce DiDonato who is a member. She sent her regrets since she is on tour in South America.
The Metropolitan Opera. Maybe they thought they could use the good will.
The amazing Audra McDonald, not a member, who automatically wins every award.
Jake Heggie. Heggie's award was accompanied by performances of pieces by him. By now there are lots to choose from.
