Described as "evocative" (Resonance) and "surreal" music "to bewilder, amuse, and provoke" (Epoch Times), the works of composer Steven Rice have won great acclaim and inspired intense debate. Rice received a 2009 ASCAP/Morton Gould Young Composer Award and took 1st Prize in the 2005 Salvatore Martirano Memorial Composition Award. His music has been championed internationally by soloists and ensembles such as the Cabrillo Festival Orchestra (Marin Alsop, director), the Cleveland Chamber Symphony, Brave New Works, the Aspen Contemporary Ensemble, and Juventas in venues such as The Stone (NYC), the Krannert Center (Urbana, IL), and Harris Hall (Aspen Music Festival and School).
