Welcome to Student Composer of the Month, where we talk with a composer each month that is currently studying or has recently studied in the greater Baltimore area. This month’s composer is Quinn Dizon, our first composer not associated with Peabody Conservatory. He has been commissioned by various soloists and large ensembles to write works for a myriad of occasions and special events. He holds degrees in composition and conducting from The College of Wooster and The University of Louisville, and is a current Flagship Fellow at the University of Maryland. He has worked recently as a conductor and a music educator, and is an advocate for the performance of new music.
