Stephen Mills makes a dance for ABT, and Elizabeth Crist wins an honor from ASCAP

More national exposure for Ballet Austin Artistic Director Stephen Mills. This time American Ballet Theatre came calling with a commission to create a new work for ABT's Studio Company, the 8-year-old adjunct company that takes 12 young dancers of outstanding potential and prepares them for professional ballet careers. Mills' work, set to music by Philip Glass, will debut at the Skirball Theatre at New York University on Dec. 3, in a program that also features an original piece by Dominic Walsh.

Elizabeth Crist, assistant professor of Musicology at UT-Austin, is one of nine writers and editors and their publishers to be honored by the American Society of Composers, Authors & Publishers in the 37th annual ASCAP-Deems Taylor Awards for outstanding print, broadcast, and new media coverage of music. Crist was recognized for her article "Aaron Copland and the Popular Front," published in the Journal of the American Musicological Society. She will join the other honorees at a reception on Dec. 1 at the Walter Reade Theatre in New York City.
