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, everyone! So, I'm brand new to the entire music exchange, but I'm so glad I've found it. I have been listening to many talented musicians here, and have been blown away by what I've heard. It would be an honor for me to have some immensely talented composers help me with my work. This is a piece I wrote not too long ago, and is the first in my first opus. The recording isn't great -- I made a few minor mistakes when I initially recorded this. I plan to correct these errors the next time I'm in the studio. I would love some constructive criticism -- any you may have. Thank you so much in advance. I'm excited to hear more from my talented peers.
