Utah Symphony Awarded Arts Grants to Fund Percussion Commission

Information from press release

January 22, 2014

Salt Lake City — Utah Symphony has received two national arts grants of $30,000 to support the funding of an Andrew Norman percussion concerto commission.

The Koussevitzky Music Foundation has committed $20,000 towards the commission, and National Endowment for the Arts (NEA) has pledged an amount of $10,000. Both grants support the commission and world premiere of composer Andrew Norman’s percussion concerto to be debuted by the Utah Symphony with soloist Colin Currie April 18 and 19 at Abravanel Hall. This world premiere will be conducted by music director Thierry Fischer and featured on the Utah Symphony Masterworks Series.

With Mr. Norman’s compositional successes to date, and his recent residency appointment with Los Angeles Chamber Orchestra, we are honored and excited that he has agreed to work with Utah Symphony on this project,” said Toby Tolokan, vice president of artistic planning. “We are also excited to welcome back world-renowned percussionist, Colin Currie, for this concert.”

This commission is the third for the orchestra in the four years of Fischer's tenure as music director.

Currie has performed with Utah Symphony on several occasions in the past few years and has frequently partnered with Fischer and several orchestras in Europe.
