The Yale School of Music is pleased to announce that composer Garth Neustadter ’12MM has been nominated for a Primetime Emmy Award for his score for the PBS documentary John Muir in the New World. The score was recorded at Yale with members of the Yale Philharmonia, the Yale Symphony Orchestra, and the Linden String Quartet. Neustadter is a student in the School of Music’s composition program, where he studies with Christopher Theofanidis.
