Congratulations to DAH Administrative Secretary, Josh Kwassman, on ASCAP Award

1 Mar
Joshua Kwassman was recently awarded his second consecutive ASCAP Young Jazz Composers Award for his piece, “The Nowhere Trail, Part I”. This twelve-minute piece features Joshua on melodica, alto and soprano saxophones, and clarinet, and makes unusual use of wordless voice. It was written for a six-piece ensemble, and was recognized with a cash award. There will be two ceremonies, as well, one of which will be held at Lincoln Center. The piece will be featured on Joshua’s upcoming album, Songs of the Brother Spirit, along with last year’s award-winner, “In Light There Is Song”.
Joshua is finishing his Master of Music coursework through the Steinhardt Jazz Graduate department at NYU. He has studied composition with renowned composer Richard Shemaria, as well as Gil Goldstein. He will give his Masters’ recital in room 779, 35 West 4th St, on Sunday, April 15th at 5PM. Open to the public. for more info!
