Several musicians with ties to Bowling Green State University
have worked on music nominated for Grammy Awards.
Alum (1986) Jennifer Higdon s City Scape/Concerto for Orchestra, has nominations in four categories: classical contemporary composition, classical album, orchestral performance, and engineered album/classical). Leading the Atlanta Symphony, which
performed the piece on the recording, is conductor Robert Spano, who directed the Bowling Green Philharmonia from 1985 to 1989 and received an honorary doctorate from BGSU in 2003.
In addition, Andrew Pelletier, visiting assistant professor at BGSU this year, plays French horn on the Grammy-nominated Sonata for Four Horns with the Southwest Chamber Music group in the category of small ensemble performance with or without a conductor.
