Dietrich music department's Eric Moe wins Barlow Endowment commission

Eric Moe, Andrew W. Mellon Professor of Music in the Department of Music in the Kenneth P. Dietrich School of Arts and Sciences, was awarded a $9,000 commission from the Barlow Endowment for Music Composition at Brigham Young University. 

The endowment, one of the premier commissioning organizations for new concert music in the U.S., selected Moe and twelve other composers to write 20-minute works in the coming year. Moe’s composition will be for an ensemble featuring flute, clarinet, cello, piano and percussion instruments.

Moe is the co-director of the Music on the Edge concert series and is the director of Pitt’s electronic music studio.
