Instructor Feldman Honored With Music Industry Award
SANTA CLARITA The American Society of Composers, Authors & Publishers (ASCAP) has honored College of the Canyons music instructor Bernardo Feldman with its 2004-05 ASCAP Award. The award is based on the unique prestige value of Feldmans catalog of original compositions, as well as recent performances.
Feldman, who serves as director of the College of the Canyons Music Department, has a catalog of work that includes music for chamber and symphonic groups, as well as compositions involving the use of computers to combine electronic and acoustic sounds.
His music has been performed throughout the United States, Mexico, Brazil, Europe and Israel by major ensembles such as the Orquesta Filarmonica de la Ciudad de Mexico, New London Contemporary Ensemble, North/South Consonance and CalArts 20th Century Players.
Feldman is a graduate of California Institute of the Arts and UCLA.
The awards are granted by an independent panel and reflect ASCAPs commitment to assist and encourage musical composers.
Note to reporters and editors: Dr. Feldman can be reached for additional comment at (661) 362-3995 or (661) 362-3254.
