Composer and Emerson Performing Arts Associate Professor Scott Wheeler is among four winners who will be recognized at the 2010 Classical Recording Foundation Awards. The awards ceremony will take place on October 4 at Carnegie Hall’s Weill Recital Hall.

Wheeler is being honored for his forthcoming Naxos release, Wasting the Night: Songs of Scott Wheeler.

“Scott has come up with a fresh approach to American art song by going back to the basics—clearly set, communicative poetry with appealingly direct vocal lines and smart, idiomatic accompaniments,” producer Adam Abeshouse said of Wheeler’s recordings.
