composer FAIL #61

They're not ALL cat pictures…
To add to the category of "nicest rejection letters of all time" (or are they killing me with their kindness?), I present this case study.

This appeared in my inbox fourteen days before receiving the actual rejection letter.

And then I received the actual rejection letter in the form of a press release.

Eh, I will say this (like in the case of both the Dodgers and the Reds not winning the world series): there is always next year. Actually, I'm happy this fellowship was even offered: the Individual Artists Grants were cut in 2009 due to lack of funding. Congrats to those who won—I hope to see and hear your stuff around the city soon.
