ASCAP awards for new music programming by orchestras announced
The New Music Box has the lowdown on all of the orchestras (big budget category to the small budget ones - plus college and youth orchestras). I'm surprised that Portland State University and its conductor Ken Selden didn't win again in the college category, but they were beaten out by Cornell, Peabody, and Brown. Maybe the upshot is that new music is catching on. The announcement was made in Chicago where the League of American Orchestras is holding its annual meeting.
