John Boggs wins 2nd annual Brehm Prize for a new choral composition


UM Masters student John Boggs has been named the winner of the 2012 Brehm Prize in Choral Composition.  The award includes a cash prize and performance by the University Chamber Choir during the 2012-2013 season.

The prize has been established to encourage the composition of choral works by SMTD students, and made possible by William (BS ’50, MS ’52) and Delores Brehm. Mr. Brehm, a composer in his own right and a lover of choral music, has had his works performed in concert at U-M, the Smithsonian Institution, and at Fuller Theological Seminary.

John Boggs's music has been performed by the American Symphony Orchestra, Da Capo, the Colorado String Quartet, Matisse Quartet, and new music ensemble Contemporaneous.  He currently studies with Kristen Kuster.
