CANTORI RECEIVES AWARD FOR ADVENTUROUS PROGRAMMING
We are proud to announce that Cantori New York and Artistic Director Mark Shapiro have been named recipients of the 2018 Chorus America/ASCAP Adventurous Programming Award. The distinction “recognizes member choruses that demonstrate a commitment to fostering and promoting new music,” especially music from the last 25 years, new commissions, and premieres. The panel of anonymous choral composers that chooses recipients considers the “variety and creativity” of member choruses’ most recent seasons. In the 2016-2017 season Cantori New York was honored to present the world premieres of two new works: Dariusz Przybylski’s Tyger Tyger, and Alice Ping Yee Ho’s The Depth of this Quiet. The season also included James Primosch’s Mass for the Day of St. Thomas Didymus, a New York premiere. Cantori is one of three choirs receiving the honor this year, marking the fourth time it has received the Adventurous Programming Award in the last quarter-century. More information can be found at the Chorus America website.
