That patronage remains a critical contemporary concern, not merely a topic of historical interest, is illustrated in Clague's case study from the twenty-first century. He begins with an extensive survey of the aesthetic principles found in earlier European and American commentaries in order to review the idea of a compositional “school” itself; he then focuses his discussion on the Atlanta school of composers and the work of Atlanta Symphony conductor Robert Spano. Clague traces Spano’s strategic commissioning principles as well as the tactics used to introduce new music to new audiences, while also offering insight into the creative power of institution building through community engagement.

Keywords:   Patronage, Atlanta school, Atlanta Symphony, Robert Spano, community engagement, schools of composition, aesthetics
