Ellen Highstein on Contemporary Music at Tanglewood (Video)

Musical America has an interview clip up on YouTube featuring Tanglewood Music Center Director Ellen Highstein discussing the important of contemporary music at the festival.

Highstein’s verbal articulation of this commitment was backed up by Tanglewood students and faculty over five days packed with committed and well-prepared performances at the 2012 Festival of Contemporary Music this past August. Let’s hope that when a new director arrives at the BSO, he or she continues with this commitment to repertoire from our time.
