In February, the School of Music honored Pulitzer Prize- and Grammy award-winning artist Jennifer Higdon during a four-day event.

“A Celebration of Jennifer Higdon” featured wind ensemble and symphony orchestra concerts as well as a guest artist lecture from Higdon.

Higdon, a native of Maryville, was a guest artist in residence for the week at the School of Music and worked with master’s composition and theory students.

Several media outlets covered the event including the Daily Times, Knoxville Mercury, Knoxville News Sentinel, Arts Knoxville, There’s More to Knoxville, the Pulitzer Prizes, and WUOT.
