"a little space" wins YNYC's Nathan Davis Prize in Composition

After a great time in New York last weekend and an amazing performance by Michael Kerschner and the Young New Yorkers' Chorus, I am proud to take the title of "Winner of the Nathan Davis Prize" in composition. The Young New Yorkers' Chorus has an amazing competition for young composers and it has long been a goal of mine to be a part of it. The ensemble does a brilliant job of supporting new music and fostering creativity in young artists. I hope that all composer friends will choose to be a part of it!
