Long Island native and pianist/composer Michael Brown won the 2010 Concert Artists Guild Competition and this past year has been touring with the “Musicians from Ravinia” in addition to performances at the Marlboro Music Festival. Brown has been hailed as a “vividly characterized and rhythmically free-spirited” pianist by the New York Times.

The two-time winner of the Julliard School’s Gina Bachauer Competition has composed works for orchestra, small and large ensembles, solo instruments, voice and choral and is co-creator of New Paths, New Music — an organization created to promote new music by student composers throughout the New York City area.
