Who, and Where, Are America’s Composers?

"I never wanted to be a composer.

Even well into college, the thought had not even crossed my mind. I wanted to be a band director. Or a music teacher. Because when you’re in high school in northern Illinois, as I was in the 1980s, with 45 miles of cornfields in every direction, and the music bug bit you, that’s what you did."

For the full story, please see the New York Times.
