Posted on: February 15, 2012

Deadline to apply: March 16, 2012

Each year the American Society of Composers, Authors, and Publishers (ASCAP) and the League offer American orchestras Awards for Adventurous Programming, recognizing concerts that stimulate the audience, build the repertoire, and strengthen support for new work in this country and abroad. The awards recognize orchestras of all sizes whose most recent programming demonstrates a strong commitment to contemporary music.

Awards are based not only on the number of works performed which were written in the last 25 years, but also on the variety and creativity of new-music programming and presentation during the season. The independent jury gives special attention to commissioned works and to world, United States, and local premieres.
