The Boston Modern Orchestra Project, under Artistic Director Gil Rose, has been honored with an Award for Programming of Contemporary Music, offered by the American Society of Composers, Authors, and Publishers (ASCAP) and the American Symphony Orchestra League. The awards will be presented on Friday, June 17, 2005 at the ASOL's 60th National Conference in Washington, DC.

The Awards for Adventurous Programming, initiated by ASCAP in 1959, recognize American orchestras whose programs demonstrate a strong commitment to the works of contemporary composers.

This is the eighth ASCAP Award for Adventurous Programming BMOP has received since 1996.
