I am honored and thrilled to announce that With Soul Serene has won the 2018 National Band Association Merrill Jones Composition Contest! This biennial competition is given to the most outstanding work for grade 3-4 concert band and is adjudicated by a distinguished jury of professional, university, and high school wind conductors. Thanks to Lee Newman (Norcross High School) and Rebecca Phillips (Colorado State University) for their support of this project!
We are still looking for Georgia bands to participate in the consortium for this piece so please check out the link if you're interested.
