Throughout the year, the Cleveland Museum of Art presents a slew of terrific music and arts-related performances. Several exotic groups play its annual Summer Solstice party, and the museum regularly brings avant garde groups to perform at the Transformer Station in Ohio City.

All that additional programming hasn’t gone unnoticed. The museum has recently won the 2016 Chamber Music America/ASCAP Award for Adventurous Programming. According to the press release announcing the award, the annual awards recognize “U.S.-based professional ensembles and presenters for distinctive programming of music composed within the past 25 years.”

Chosen by an independent panel of classical and jazz chamber music professionals, the recipients were evaluated on the basis of their programming and innovations in attracting audiences to performances of new music. Cia Toscanini, vice president of concert music, American Society of Composers, Authors and Publishers (ASCAP), will present the awards at the Chamber Music America National Conference on Jan. 10 at the Westin New York at Times Square in New York City.
