Anthony O’Toole, of Indiana, received honorable mention recognition for “Theme and Variations on A Mighty Fortress” in the 2013 Composition Contest of the Humboldt Brass Chamber Music Workshop.
The contest focused on original eight- to 10-minute works for a college-level brass septet. All qualifying entries were played and evaluated using a blind audition process by representatives of the workshop coaching staff and other California professional brass musicians. Amateur musicians will perform this year’s contest submissions in a workshop format during the July 2013 Brass Chamber Music Workshop at Humboldt State University in Arcata, Calif.
The Humboldt Brass Chamber Music Workshop is held each summer in two one-week sessions. 2013 sessions are scheduled for July 21-27 and July 28-Aug. 3. Visit www.humboldt.edu/brass/.
