Auznieks Awarded Sarasota Orchestra Earshot Fellowship

EarShot, an initiative of American Composers Orchestra (ACO) in partnership with American Composers Forum, League of American Orchestras, and New Music USA, is the nation's first ongoing program for identifying and promoting the most promising orchestral composers on the national stage. Led by Los Angeles based conductor Christopher Rountree, four composers hailing from across the nation will hear their music played for the very first time. In seminars, feedback sessions and workshops the composers will spend the week working with the musicians of Sarasota Orchestra. The public will have several unique opportunities to see how the compositions develop in behind-the-scenes reading sessions leading up to Sarasota Orchestra's world premiere performances of the finished scores.
