I am very pleased to announce that “Jest” has won the grand prize at the 2017 WCSMC’s Promising Young Composers’ Competition! (really long title). The piece was the winner of the 24-30 years old category and was the overall winner of the competition. Additional young composer winners include Thomas Faulkner in the 19-23 category and Natsumi Osborn in the 15-18 age category. Congratulations to both! There is a potential performance with the local orchestra in Warren Pennsylvania but the details have not been released yet. Keep an eye on the events page for updates!
