“Musical America has named the distinguished pianist and educator Mitsuko Uchida as its 2022 Artist of the Year,” writes Nicholas Beard in Tuesday’s (10/12) Musical America (subscription required). “In the other categories, Missy Mazzoli is the Composer of the Year; Louisville Orchestra Music Director Teddy Abrams is Conductor of the Year; and bass-baritone Davóne Tines is Vocalist of the Year. Each is the subject of a feature article in the all-digital 2022 Musical America. The awards will be streamed via Facebook Live on December 5 at 4 p.m. Each of the honorees has been asked to choose a personal friend/colleague to present them with their award. This will mark the second year in a row that the ceremony has been conducted online.” Musical America is publisher of the annual International Directory for the Performing Arts, edited by Clive Paget, and of the daily Musical America news site, edited by Susan Elliott.
