Grants are several, including being a Fulbright Scholar to Australia (1973), receiving an NEA composer award (1978), and a Guggenheim Fellowship (1981). Dempster's landmark book The Modern Trombone: A Definition of Its Idioms was published in 1979 (reprint edition 1994). Dempster has performed at Cornish many times over the decades, mostly with New Performance Group, including being composer in residence with NPG during NPG's residency at Minneapolis as part of "Music in Motion" (1993-94). Commendations include Golden Ear Awards: Deep Listening (2006) and Earshot Jazz (2009); International Trombone Association Lifetime Achievement Award (2010).
