Gregg Wramage

Widely recognized as one of the leading composers of his generation, Gregg Wramage recently completed a commission from The Barlow Endowment for "The Sea-longing", a chamber concerto for the violist Brett Deubner, who will perform the work in 2015 with conductor Renee Baker and Chicago Modern Orchestra Project-the culmination of a two-year residency with the ensemble that will also feature the Chicago premieres of Mr. Wramage's first symphony, and as part of a New Music USA/League of American Orchestras Music Alive: New Partnerships residency grant, "in shadows, in silence". "La tristesse durera", a recent orchestral work premiered by the Minnesota Orchestra, received both the 2007 Copland House Sylvia Goldstein Award and the 2008 international EAMA Prize--a $10,000 award. Millennium Symphony's recording of "La tristesse durera" was released in 2008, on ERM Media's "Made in the Americas" series. "The Sunset Maker", a stage work for actor and ensemble, will be premiered in June in New York at the Music With a View and Make Music New York festivals. Mr. Wramage has been both a finalist for the Rome Prize and a semi-finalist for Opera Philadelphia's Composer-in-Residence program.
