Classical Notes

Academy of Arts and Sciences

Posted at 4:00 PM on May 9, 2008 by Rex Levang

The American Academy of Arts and Sciences, an organization founded two centuries ago by John Adams and John Hancock, among others, has announced its newest members. In the classical music category, congratulations to Marin Alsop, conductor; Dawn Upshaw, singer; Anne Robertson Walters, scholar; and Yehudi Wyner, composer.

And there are also "foreign honorary members" -- so auguri molti to Riccardo Muti.
