Founded in 2009, the American Prize provides “evaluation, recognition and reward to America’s finest performing artists, ensembles and composers, based on recorded performances.” One judge commented, “… a true piano concerto, with a big and dramatic part for the soloist.”

An assistant professor of music theory and composition at USD, Lombardi’s music has been performed in more than 20 states across the United States, as well as in other areas in North America, South America and Europe. Recordings of his music are available from Capstone Records, Zerx Records, and ERMMedia. Lombardi’s theoretical work focuses on mathematics and music, and is published in the Music Theory Spectrum, Indiana Theory Review, and Mathematics and Computers in Simulation, among other places.
