Moore Heads
Nakionfa1 WPA
Music Survey
Director Of Music School
Reports Large Number
Of Native Composers
WPA's contribution to the move-
ment for an American culture in
music will be given eloquent statis-
tical tribute in the planned "index
of American composers" which is
being compiled in New York.
The work is being directed by Prof.
Earl V. Moore of the music school,
who is serving as national director
of the WPA music program during
his semester leave-of-absence.
First statistics indicate that a to-
tal of 7,732 American compositions
has been performed under the direc-
tion of the project from its incep-
tion up to March 1. The output of
2,258 native or resident composers
include compositions stemming from
colonial and Revolutionary days, but
the majority are by living composers.
In his report Professor Moore has
revealed that 1,297 composers, nearly
60 per cent, whose works were in-
troduced by the project, are at work
today, and emphasized that the pol-
icy of encouraging the American
composer "will be in no way abated."
