A report in Tuesday’s (2/15) Bangor Daily News (Maine) states, “Two musicians with Maine connections were honored with Grammys for their work this past year at the 53rd annual Grammy Awards ceremony in Los Angeles on Sunday night. Bangor Symphony Orchestra music director Lucas Richman learned early in the evening that he had won a Grammy in the Best Crossover Classical Album category for conducting London’s Royal Philharmonic Orchestra on Christopher Tin’s album ‘Calling All Dawns.’ ‘It’s been a joy to work on this album from the very start,’ Richman said by e-mail Sunday, ‘and I am deeply honored that Christopher invited me to participate in this tremendous project. He put his incredible talents, heart and soul into making this a song cycle that speaks across all cultures and ages.’ Richman is well-known as a composer and conductor for film. His credits include the Academy Award-nominated ‘The Village’ and ‘As Good As It Gets’ among others.” Richman is also music director of the Knoxville Symphony Orchestra.
