Congratulations to Michael Conrad for his winning submission to the Arranging Ellington project! Our review panel, which included Darcy James Argue and members of the Carnegie Hall staff, 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.

Thanks to all of the arrangers who submitted their work or otherwise participated in the project, and we look forward to sharing our written feedback each of you.
