Brian Wilbur Grundstrom

Brian Wilbur Grundstrom's compositions for film, orchestra, chorus, piano, quintet and other ensembles demonstrate an innovative use of harmony and melody, which although firmly rooted in the tonal tradition is entirely new. Audiences take to his compositions immediately. Classically trained in piano as well as music theory from Gettysburg College, he has continued orchestration and composition studies with John David Earnest. His awards include Encore from American Composers Forum, Composers Assistance Program from the American Music Center, ASCAPLUS from ASCAP as well as two artist fellowships from the D.C. Commission on the Arts and Humanities. SONOS Chamber Orchestra Director Erik E. Ochsner writes "Many audiences cringe at the thought of new music. We had such positive feedback from audiences on how much they enjoyed Grundstrom's work. It is modern, yet tonal." He is represented by Jeffrey James Arts Consulting, and his compositions can be heard at:
