Oberlin Conservatory Faculty members Gary Bartz and Robert Spano Win Grammy Awards (603 words)
Spano won the best choral performance award with Norman MacKenzie, ASO director of choruses, for the orchestra's recording of Hector Berlioz's Requiem, Op.
Spano and the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra also won a Grammy for best engineered album for their Telarc recording of Jennifer Higdon's City Scape and Concerto for Orchestra, which was also nominated in three other categories: best classical album, best orchestral performance, and best classical contemporary composition.
Spano also has to move aside a few Grammy awards to make room on his bookshelf; in 2003 he and the ASO swept the three categories for which they were nominated (best classical album, best choral performance, and best engineered classical album) with their Telarc recording of Ralph Vaughan Williams' A Sea Symphony.
