KYMTA Composer Gets National Recoginition


Matthew Herman has gotten some much-deserved recognition from MTNA for his composition, Appalachian Variations, which was written as the 2020 Commissioned Composer work for our 2020 Conference.

The composition (which is still available to watch on our 2020 Conference page) received an Honorable Mention for MTNA’s “Distinguished Composer of the Year” Award. The Distinguished Composer of the Year Award is chosen from all the Commissioned Composer works from all MTNA state affiates from a given year.

Congratulations again to Matthew Hermann on receiving this honor – we look forward to his future compositions!
