And the Winner is...

The winner of the 2022 Choral Composition Competition is
Nicholas Ward.

Nicholas Ward

Born and raised in the San Francisco Bay Area, and exposed to music continuously through his early elementary school years, Nicholas Ward got his start playing music in the fifth grade, and was composing original works by the eighth. In 2019 he was admitted as an undergrad to Boston University as a Music Theory and Composition major, studying first under Martin Amlin and presently under John H. Wallace. Currently a senior, he will graduate with his Bachelor of Music in Music Theory and Composition in Spring 2023.

Nicholas says, "My interest in composing is very much a personal one. I need some way to express my thoughts and feelings outside of the written/spoken word as I get massive writer's block when trying to express myself as such. For example, finding the words for this paragraph, despite how little writing it is, certainly made me think hard! I don't know where exactly the inspiration comes from and what exactly the cognitive or emotional impetus for me starting a piece is most of the time, but I do know that I am the conduit that was chosen to write it out so it can be more easily performed. In doing so, it gives me a feeling of catharsis in a way, as it gives me a place to put my thoughts and feelings that can't necessarily be expressed in words. I feel that when someone hears my work, if they feel something... anything, then I've done my job as its conduit and can feel some relief that my thoughts and feelings are out there now for others to contemplate."
