Orchestral adventure in Minneapolis and Sioux Falls

Posted at 2:59 PM on June 26, 2007 by Don Lee

The Minnesota Orchestra and the South Dakota Symphony were honored for their programming efforts at the annual American Symphony Orchestra League conference. Each year at the gathering, ASCAP--the American Society of Composers, Authors and Publishers--recognizes orchestras for their "adventurous programming" in various categories.

For the third year in a row, the Minnesota Orchestra earned the Leonard Bernstein Award for Educational Programming.

For Programming of Contemporary Music, the South Dakota Symphony took third place among orchestras with operating expenses between $470,000 and $1.8 million. Last year it placed second.
