UCSD-TV wins Emmy

UCSD-TV took home the Emmy Award in the Entertainment-Program or Special category for “La Jolla Symphony & Chorus: Philip Glass’ Cello Concerto.”

UCSD-TV’s Arts and Humanities producer John Menier accepted the award – his fifth career Emmy win and UCSD-TV’s thirteenth – at the June 13 ceremony in downtown San Diego.

The award-winning program features La Jolla Symphony & Chorus’ North American premiere of Glass’ “Cello Concerto” and interviews with cellist Wendy Sutter, conductor Steven Schick, and the composer himself.

UCSD-TV and La Jolla Symphony & Chorus have created an ongoing partnership to produce programs that showcase performances and behind-the-scenes interviews with the artists. Two new programs will debut on UCSD-TV in July, including Evan Ziporyn’s “Frog’s Eye” with Tijuana-based dance troupe Lux Boreal, and “Passion,” featuring Elgar’s “Cello Concerto” with guest cellist Maya Beiser.

“The Devil’s Breath,” a UCSD-TV documentary about border crossers caught in the October 2007 wildfires, was also nominated for an Emmy in the Documentary Topical category.

More information about UCSD-TV’s Emmy experience and links to view both nominated programs online are available at www.ucsd.tv/2009emmys/.

The Emmy Awards are given by The National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences and recognize outstanding achievements in television within the Pacific Southwest region, which includes San Diego County and the television markets of Bakersfield, Oxnard, Palm Springs, San Luis Obispo, Santa Barbara and Santa Maria, California, and Las Vegas, Nevada.
