2002 CONCERT MUSIC AWARDS

Honorees Include Winners of the 2002 ASCAP Foundation Morton Gould Young Composer Awards

The third annual ASCAP Concert Music Awards were presented at a ceremony and reception at New York's Lincoln Center. The event, hosted by ASCAP composer member, performer and radio host Peter Schickele, was held at the Walter Reade Theater at Lincoln Center in New York. In addition to the 2002 ASCAP Foundation Morton Gould Young Composer winners, honorees included: Gerard Schwarz, Music Director of the Seattle Symphony and the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic and a champion of American composers and the music of our time; Henry Brant, 2002 Pulitzer Prize for Composition; Bright Sheng, 2001 MacArthur Fellowship; Justin Davidson (ASCAP Concert Composer) 2002 Pulitzer Prize for Criticism; Peter Schickele, composer, educator, humorist, performer and radio personality; and The American Composers Orchestra for its 25 Years of service to American Concert music.

A highlight of the event was the recognition of the twenty-nine ASCAP Foundation Morton Gould Young Composer Award recipients. The ASCAP Foundation program honors the late ASCAP and ASCAP Foundation President Morton Gould's lifelong commitment to encouraging young creators. The winning composers share prizes of over $30,000, including the Leo Kaplan Award, honoring the distinguished jurist who served for twenty-eight years as ASCAP Special Distribution Advisor. The six ASCAP composer/judges for the 2002 competition were: Samuel Adler, Eve Beglarian, Chen Yi, Donald Freund, Roberto Sierra and Chris Theofanidis.
