Lev Marquis (’09) – Winner of ASCAP Morton Gould Young Composer Award
Lev Marquis (class of ’09) was chosen as a winner of an ASCAP Morton Gould Young Composer Award with his original composition: Murder in a Vast Expanse.
From the program notes:
Murder in a Vast Expanse is a musical interpretation of a raw feeling I was exposed to in a childhood nightmare: Death approaching and nothing you can do to stop it. You can fight back, but it is utterly futile; soon you will succumb and fade into nothingness—even if you do manage to go out with a bang.
