DAYTON OH (June 28, 2010) – At the National Conference of the League of American Orchestras, held June 16-19 in Atlanta, Georgia, the Dayton Philharmonic Orchestra received an ASCAP Award for Adventurous Programming, the ninth in the orchestra’s history.

The Awards for Adventurous Programming are offered to American orchestras each year by the American Society of Composers, Authors, and Publishers (ASCAP) and the League of American Orchestras for concerts that challenge the audience, build the repertoire, and strengthen support for American composers in this country and abroad. The awards recognize orchestras of all sizes whose programming in the most recent concert season demonstrates a strong commitment to contemporary music.

Adjudication by an independent, anonymous jury is based not only on the number of contemporary works (written in the last 25 years) performed by each orchestra, but also on the variety and creativity of new-music programming during the season.

Significant works by contemporary American composers performed by the DPO in the 09-10 season included the world premiere of Lowell Liebermann’s Clarinet Concerto, Steve Reich’s The Four Sections, and Rainbow Body, by Christopher Theofanidis. The complete list of new music compositions performed by the DPO in the 2009-2010 Season include:
