Next Generation of Concert Music Talent Honored with 2019 Morton Gould Young Composer Awards

Awards handed out at annual ASCAP Foundation Honors ceremony in NYC

ASCAP's commitment to the next generation of songwriters and composers deeply impressed me and was a major factor in bringing them on board with my team. We have such a responsibility to nurture young musicians and I am committed to this challenge in every aspect of my engagement with the art form.
