Members of Baylor Music Faculty Receive Ascap Awards

Sept. 28, 1995

Two faculty members in the School of Music at Baylor University were recently named as recipients of cash awards given by the American Society of Composers, Authors and Publishers (ASCAP).

Dr. Marvin Lamb, dean and professor of the School of Music, and Dr. Richard M. Willis, the Mable and L.N. Yeager Professor of Music and Composer-in-Residence, were recognized for their compositions and contributions to classical, or serious, music during the past fiscal year.

The ASCAP awards are granted by an independent panel and are based on the prestige value of each writer's catalog of original compositions, as well as the recent performance activity of the works.

Lamb joined Baylor's faculty in 1989 and has received the ASCAP award for 17 consecutive years.

An annual recipient of the award for 25 years, Willis has been teaching at Baylor since 1964.
