(b 1962 )

Pulitzer Prize winner Jennifer Higdon is one of America’s most performed living composers. Higdon received the 2010 Pulitzer Prize in Music for her Violin Concerto, with the committee citing Higdon’s work as “a deeply engaging piece that combines flowing lyricism with dazzling virtuosity.” She is the recipient of many other awards, including a Pew Fellowship, a Guggenheim Fellowship and two awards from the American Academy of Arts & Letters. Her list of commissioners ranges from the Philadelphia Orchestra to the St. Paul Chamber Orchestra, from Eighth Blackbird to the Tokyo String Quartet, and from The President’s Own Marine Band to artists such as Hilary Hahn. Her works have been released on over three dozen CDs, and most recently her Percussion Concerto won the 2010 GRAMMY® for Best Contemporary Classical Composition. Higdon holds the Rock Chair in Composition at The Curtis Institute of Music in Philadelphia. Her music is published exclusively by Lawdon Press.
