2016 ASCAP Foundation Harold Arlen Film & TV Award

Pegram has received the 2016 ASCAP Foundation Harold Arlen Film & TV Award, which each summer recognizes an outstanding writer who has participated in the ASCAP Film Scoring Workshop in Los Angeles. A committee consisting of both ASCAP staff and industry professionals involved with the ASCAP Television & Film Scoring Workshop selected Pegram based on “excellence, professionalism, musical ability and career potential demonstrated in the 2016 workshop.” The award is funded through a generous gift from Sam and Joan Arlen, honoring Harold Arlen, composer of “Somewhere Over the Rainbow” and “Stormy Weather.” Previous recipients include Joseph Trapanese (Straight Outta Compton, Oblivion, Tron: Legacy). Pegram will attend ASCAP Foundation’s national awards ceremony in New York this December.
