That difference in political and artistic leadership may explain why Scotland has succeeded in cultivating its native composers and Oregon hasn Unlike Scotland, shortsighted Oregon political and classical music institutions have failed to invest in our state creative artists. If we want Oregon classical music to flourish, every Oregon classical music institution, especially those that receive public funding, should be regularly (not once every few years, as now) performing and commissioning the works of Oregon composers. If our major classical music organizations would only demonstrate a serious commitment to the creative future of the state they supposed to serve, they might find the next James MacMillan right here in Oregon.
