Pulitzer Series

Shenandoah’s Pulitzer Prize Visiting Artist Series brings a Pulitzer Prize-winning composer to the Shenandoah campus each year, to celebrate their work and interact with the student composers and performers.  Now entering it’s third year, the Pulitzer series is a highlight of each academic year, and a centerpiece of Shenandoah’s thriving new music scene.

Our guests:

2012-13      William Bolcom, who was awarded the prize in 1988 for his Twelve New Etudes.
2013-14      Kevin Puts, who was awarded the prize in 2012 for his opera Silent Night. 
2014-15      Jennifer Higdon, who was awarded the prize in 2010 for her Violin Concerto.

Our guest for the 2015-16 season will be David Lang.


Professor Garrick Zoeter performs William Bolcom’s Clarinet Concerto with the Shenandoah Orchestra at our 2012 celebration.
