“America in Space” Takes Flight With Works by BMI Composers

Posted in News on August 28, 2019

On August 15, BMI composer Penka Kouneva’s dream of celebrating U.S. trips to space took flight when her out-of-this-world music, as well as that of several other composers, was featured during “America in Space” at the Hollywood Bowl. Performed by the LA Philharmonic and conducted by BMI composer/conductor David Newman, Kouneva triumphantly shared the spotlight with BMI composers Justin Hurwitz, who won the Golden Globe this year for his score to First Man, and Harry Gregson Williams, who scored The Martian. Performers at the event also included Nathan Cole (violin), Diana Newman (soprano), Pedro Eustache (Native American flute) and rehcarj sound bowl ensemble, with planetary scientist and member of the Mars Curiosity rover team, Dr. Abigain Fraeman, as guest speaker.
