Congratulations to DMA composition student Jennifer Jolley, the winner of the 2011 CCM Orchestra Composition Competition! This annual competition involves several CCM composition students whose works are initially given readings by the Philharmonia. Then, a panel of judges chooses one composer to write a new orchestral work for the CCM Philharmonia for a performance during the following season.

Jennifer’s new piece will be conducted by Professor Mark Gibson and the other piece on the program (a year from April) will be the 8th symphony of Bruckner.
