F. George Damson Competition

The F. George Damson Music Performance Competition is the result of a fund established by Mrs. Mary Kay Arbuthnot and her family to honor the memory of her father, the late F. George Damson.  Mr. Damson taught at Western State College for thirty-seven years and was the originator and director of the renowned Gunnison Summer Music Camp.  With Edwyl Redding and Annie F. Andres, he composed the school's Alma Mater.

The winner of the competition has the honor of performing a “Damson Recital” within the following academic year in order to receive the cash prize.
