Student Composers Win in Two Competitions

Benjamin Horne and Zachary McDonald, students of Dr. James Ogburn, received first prize for their compositions in two recent competitions.

Ben's piece for trombone ensemble, Gladiator, won first prize in the Texas Tech Trombone Ensemble Composition Contest. It will be premiered at TTU with Charles Vernon of the Chicago Symphony as soloist.

Zack's piece, They Say Change Is Good But I Don't Like It, won first place in the MTNA Southern Division competition, having been selected as Georgia winner earlier this fall. He will represent the nine southeastern states at the national competition in January.

Congratulations to all!
