Contemporary Music for Schools.
Music Educators National Conference, Washington, DC.
The catalog lists compositions written by thirty-nine composers during the five-year first phase of the Young Composers Project, the primary objective of which was to afford composers the opportunity to master their craft by writing works suitable for performance in secondary public school systems to which they were assigned. A total of 575 choral, band, orchestral, and ensemble works are given, thirty-two percent of which were published. The catalog is arranged by types of work with author listings, and includes information on the duration of the piece, medium, level (if other than high school), and publisher. Short resumes are given on each composer followed by listings of participating school systems, project committee members, and publishers addresses. A memorandum to composers and music supervisors provides a background explanation of the project and explains the supervisor and composer functions in the project. A related document is ED 017 107.
