Ellen Schwartz & Friends


The BMI Foundation Ellen Schwartz Award
For Outstanding Literary Merit In Lyric Writing

Ellen’s family has established an award to be presented by the BMI Foundation each year to a participant in BMI’s Lehman Engel Musical Theatre Workshop, honoring outstanding literary merit in lyric writing.

This Ellen Schwartz award is intended both to recognize the contribution that Ellen’s years of participation in the Workshop made to her own career, and to encourage high literary standards in lyric writing – like those Ellen’s own lyrics consistently reflected.

The Ellen Schwartz award will be announced by the BMI Foundation at the annual awards reception during the final session of the Workshop each year.
