Composer Spotlight: Michael Nunes

As part of our project to update our syllabus we are adding new works for brass and percussion. We would like to feature some of the composers that we are adding and help promote their hard work. Meet Michael Nunes:

Michael Nunes is a Canadian composer and horn player from Sherwood Park, Alberta. He has performed as a soloist with the Hannaford Street Silver Band alongside Jens Lindemann, and at summer festivals such as the Aspen Music Festival, the National Youth Orchestra of Canada, and the Brott Music Festival. Previous commissions include the Edmonton Symphony Orchestra and the National Academy Orchestra of Canada. He is a current substitute musician with the New World Symphony. Michael holds a BMus from the University of Toronto, and is pursuing an MMus degree at The Juilliard School studying with Erik Ralske.

His works Quixotic Fantasy (for solo horn), Vast (for horn and electronics), and Sonata (for Tuba and Piano) are being added to our syllabus. You can also follow Michael on instagram: @michaelnunesmusic
