Laurie San Martin receives Fromm and SFCMP commissions
November 22, 2011

On November 22, 2011, the Fromm Foundation at Harvard University announced Professor Laurie San Martin as one of twelve composers to receive commissions for a work to be performed in 2012–13. As the Foundation’s press release says, “These commissions represent one of the principal ways that the Fromm Music Foundation seeks to strengthen composition and to bring contemporary concert music closer to the public.” The Fromm foundation, established by Paul Fromm, is in its 56th year, and is responsible for more than 300 commissions and many new music concerts—including the Fromm Contemporary Music Series at Harvard. Other composers who received a commission this year from the Fromm Foundation are Marcos Balter, Armando Bayolo, Richard Carrick, David Claman, Kevin Ernste, Ruby Fulton, Lee Hyla, Amy Beth Kirsten, Felipe Lara, Jeremy Podgursky, and Neil Rolnick.

San Martin also received a commission by the San Francisco Contemporary Music Players via the new TenFourteen Project. The commission is for a new work to be performed some time during one of the five planned concerts in their 2014–15 season. Other composers who received a commission by the SFCMP’s TenFourteen Project are Chou Wen-chung, George Crumb, Lei Liang, Koji Nakano, Gabriela Ortiz, Elena Ruehr, Ken Ueno, Du Yun, and Agata Zubel. The works will be composed for an ensemble between five and nine players, and will be between 18–25 minutes long.
