The New York Times reported today that Julia Adolphe and Melody Eötvös will each receive a $15,000 orchestral commission as part of a new program administered by The League of American Orchestras and EarShot to provide commissions and premieres for scores composed by women. The new program is made possible through the support of the Virginia B. Toulmin
Foundation Program for Commissioning Women in the Performing Arts.

Adolphe is based in Los Angeles and Eötvös, who was born in Australia, currently lives in Bloomington, Indiana. Both were among the emerging composers chosen for readings and performances by the New York Philharmonic and ACO as part of the inaugural NY Phil Biennial in June of this year.
