composition competition winners!

counter)induction is proud to announce the winners of our second composition competition. The dozens of entries had a huge stylistic range and came in from the US, Europe and Asia. As with our first competition, we were blown away by the range and quality of the submissions, and only wish we could have awarded more prizes.

The winning work in Category II was Carl Schimmel's sly and energetic The Pismirist’s Congeries; Carl currently resides in Grinnel, Iowa, and you can read more about him at his website.

In category I, the award went to Christopher Rogerson for Brothers. Chris is a third-year student at the Curtis Institute of Music.

Carl Schimmel's work will be performed on counter)induction's June 15th concert at Merkin Hall and Christopher Roberson's will be performed on a concert in out 2009-2010 season

In addition, the judges awarded a honorable mention to Charles Halka, soon to be attending Rice University to work on his DMA.

We look forward to working with the composers, and to see you all at Merkin Hall in June.
