American Music article winner of ASCAP award

We are very excited to have received word that J. Peter Burkholder’s article, “Music of the Americas and Historical Narratives,” from the Winter 2009 issue of our journal American Music, is a winner of the ASCAP Deems Taylor Award for 2010. Burkholder’s article, which argues for greater inclusion of American music history in the study of Western/European music tradition, was chosen in the Symphonic Music Articles category and will be honored at a special reception on December 9, 2010 in New York.

Congratulations to Professor Burkholder and to Michael Hicks, editor of American Music.
