Celebrating David Rose

Recipient of the 2010 ASCAP Foundation David Rose Award, Corey Wallace (2nd from r), with Betty Rose (2nd from l) and ASCAP's Mike Todd (l) and Jen Harmon (r)

In honor of David Rose's Centennial one year ago, the family of the television and film-scoring great has created two special awards to be presented in 2011. The ASCAP Foundation David Rose Centennial Award will be presented – one on the East Coast and one on the West Coast – to participants in ASCAP's Television & Film Scoring workshops.

Over the course of a long career, British-born David Rose made an indelible mark on film and television music, as well as easy listening instrumental music. His best-known works include the instrumental standards, "Holiday for Strings" and "The Stripper," the score for the science fiction classic, Forbidden Planet, music for Bonanza, Little House on the Prairie, and decades of work with radio and television star Red Skelton. We are grateful to Betty Rose and Angela RoseWhite for their ongoing support of aspiring composers.
