In addition to his recent American Prize award, Guthrie has also been invited to the 2017 Valencia International Performance Academy and Festival (VIPA Festival), where he will compose an extended work for flutist Erik Drescher and study with the composition faculty, including Pulitzer Prize winning composer Melinda Wagner.
Lots of news:
1) Guthrie has been recently announced as a Finalist for the 2016 American Prize in Chamber Music.
2) Guthrie was again a Finalist in the annual MTNA National Competition, this time for my composition Tropical Sabbath.
3) Guthrie will be performing and presenting at the Society of Composers, Inc. Region VIII Conference from March 2-4 and would love to see you there!
For the second consecutive year, Ian Guthrie has advanced through the State and Regional rounds to the National round of the MTNA (Music Teacher’s National Association) Composition Competition.
Over the past week, Ian Evans Guthrie has just received three awards in both composition and piano. The first was 3rd prize in the international Great Composers Competition, Masters of Piano Sonata. This was based on his exceptional performance of Beethoven’s Piano Sonata no. 32 in C minor, op. 111.
The second was 1st prize in the Washington State MTNA Award in Composition. Like last year, he now advances to the Regional round, and if he wins that, he will again advance to the National round.
Third, of which Guthrie just informed me today: he has been announced one of 27 student semifinalists in The American Prize, Chamber Music category for his Journey Through Cascadia (it looks like the journey still continues!), and now advances to the finalist stage.
