Joan Tower, Composer of the Year
Joan Tower, the first woman ever to receive the Grawemeyer Award in music, is the Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra's Composer of the Year for 2010-11. The orchestra salutes Tower with works both familiar and new to Pittsburgh audiences during five subscription series. She says, "Working with the PSO is a dream come true. I don't know of any orchestra that plays FIVE pieces of a living composer in one season! That is a commitment that is truly exciting in the world of major orchestras and shows a unique vision towards the living composer."
