ADAM SCHOENBERG has been named Saykaly Garbulinska Composer-in-Residence at the Lexington (Ky.) Philharmonic and Lexington Chamber Music Festival for 2013-14. His residency—a partnership between the orchestra and festival launched in 2011 with the support of Dr. Ronald Saykaly and his wife, concert pianist Teresa Garbulinska, who died last March—will include the premieres of two works by Adam Schoenberg, one at the festival in August 2013 and one that will be performed by the Lexington Philharmonic in early 2014. Schoenberg served as BMI Composer-in-Residence for the Blair School of Music at Vanderbilt University in 2012; was a MacDowell Fellow in 2009 and 2010; and received ASCAP’s Morton Gould Young Composer Award in 2007. He has been the recipient of two commissions from the Kansas City Symphony, where he served as composer-in-residence in 2012-13, and two from the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra. Schoenberg is a 2010 graduate of The Juilliard School.
