Symphony’s new music efforts win top national award

June 18, 2010

If you enjoyed the work of Paul Lansky as composer-in-residence for the most recent season of the Alabama Symphony Orchestra, you won’t be surprised the learn that ASO won first prize among orchestras of its size for Adventurous Programming as part of the recent ASCAP Awards.

This puts us in the same rank with the New York Philharmonic and Albany Symphony, which won top recognition in other groups. It also raises the visibility of an organization that has already won national attention for the quality of its programming.

Stay tuned for more and better in 2010-11, as ASO premieres works commissioned from Adolphus Hailstork and from the next composer-in-residence, Avner Dorman. And then there’s the Carnegie Hall debut in 2012, as ASO shows off its talents to a national audience.
