Chris Brubeck receives $12,000 grant

Composition grant

Wilton’s Chris Brubeck has received a $12,000 grant from the Fromm Music Foundation at Harvard University for the commission of a new work that will be premiered by the New Haven Symphony Orchestra next season. Mr. Brubeck was one of 12 composers nationwide to receive such a grant in 2013. The commissions, according to the foundation, represent one of the principal ways it ‘seeks to strengthen composition and to bring contemporary concert music closer to the public.’ Information: NewHavenSymphony.org
