- This week on SoundNotion, we have long time friend of the show and the strongest beard in new music Rob Deemer with his new clarinet/bass clarinet concerto “Home” (premiered by The President’s Own and commissioned by long-time member of the group Jay Niepoetter).
- Rob also helped NAfME last year with some new education standards for music theory and composition. They hadn’t been updated since 1994.
- Jane Chu officially takes the helm at the NEA.
- In a shocking move (sarcasm added), Amazon has launched a new music streaming service.
