Three BYU professors receive ASCAP awards

Three Brigham Young University School of Music professors received the 2004-2005 American Society of Composers, Authors and Publishers Award.

Christian Asplund, Thomas L. Durham and Steven L. Ricks each received the award after an independent panel of seven experts reviewed their applications.

"A lot of classical composers apply for the award," Asplund said. "It is designed to recognize composers who have a fair number of performances and prestige, but who work in areas that don't get a lot of royalties, such as classical and jazz."

Some of the panelists included a drama critic from the Star Ledger, the West Coast Bureau Chief of Billboard and the conductor of the Oakland-East Bay Symphony Orchestra.

ASCAP members can apply for the award every year as long as they meet the criteria for the award.
