BCCO SELECTS WINNER OF THE EMERGING COMPOSER COMPETITION

We're delighted to report that Kurt Erickson has been chosen, from almost 100 entrants around the country, as the winner of our Emerging Composer Competition. He was selected by a panel of judges and the members of the chorus.

We have commissioned Kurt to write a short piece in honor of BCCO's 50th anniversary, and the piece will premiere at our fall 2015 concert series. We're looking forward to working with Kurt at some rehearsals next fall!
