Arranging Ellington

Congratulations to Michael Conrad for his winning submission to the Arranging Ellington project! Our review panel was impressed by the depth and inventiveness of all of the submissions, but Michael’s arrangement of “Come Sunday” was particularly remarkable. 


Due to the high quality of submissions we received, we have decided that two other arrangements from the project will also be performed at the concert on March 30th at Carnegie Hall. We would like to congratulate Dan O’Brien and Stephanie Wieseler on being selected to have their arrangements performed this spring.

Hi Composing Group! I posted a new MAKING IT HAPPEN today, and I thought you would be interested to see it. I interviewed Mike Visceglia, who is a bassist with a crazy impressive resume!! He has toured all over the world with rock & pop stars, and is now playing in the band for KINKY BOOTS on Broadway! His story is pretty awesome and I hope you enjoy!!
