WHYY-FM's "Radio Times with Marty Moss-Coane"

Two orchestral works commissioned by Temple's Boyer College of Music and Dance and performed by the Temple University Symphony Orchestra have been nominated for GRAMMY awards in the "Best Instrumental Composition" category. Robert Stroker, dean of Temple's Center for the Arts and vice provost for the arts, joined "Radio Times" to discuss one of the pieces — "Music of Ansel Adams: America" — with its co-composer, Chris Brubeck. "It has been such a unique and wonderful experience for [students] at Temple to have this experience of working with such legends — a musical and wonderful family, the Brubecks," said Stroker.
