Nationally syndicated shows on NPR don’t tend to pay much attention to new music unless it’s of the indie rock variety.  But the nationally syndicated show Studio 360 (produced by WNYC in New York), spends the first part of  the program this week talking with Jennifer Higdon — not so much about winning the Pulitzer Prize and a Grammy this year (although those are the motivating factors for her being booked on the show) but, rather, on questions of relevance to anyone making a life in contemporary music from reaching audiences to the process of composition, etc.  The show is available online at

One Response to “Higdon on Studio 360 This Week”
  1. Thanks for the link. I’ve got tickets to see her violin concerto in Dallas next week. It’s a little silly, but it’s the first time I’ve gotten to hear a new Pulitzer-winning piece live. Alas, such is the life of a contemporary composer in the southwest.
