765[TV Song for impromptu chorus and orchestra]
 D "Ever the innovator. Henry Cowell appeared on WBAL-TV in Balti-
more on Sunday, December 9, [1951]. He is the first composer to write
 asong, then and there, under the eyes of a TV audience. Ogden Nash,
originally scheduled to do an original poem on the same broadcast,
bowed out at the last minute.
"As the verse was composed [by the studio audience, collectively?],
Cowell wrote out the music on a blackboard. Copyists immediately
made parts for the orchestra. The Song was rehearsed and performed,
and the telecast wound up with a bang instead of a tone cluster. This
was undoubtedly a first on television, and historians might take note"
(American Composers Alliance Bulletin 2:1 [Feb 1952], pl2).
