Area 12 is happy to announce that the winner of our 2019 Composition Contest is Fervent Freedom by Mike Mazzatenta. This winning composition will be published and included in the repertoire list for the 2020 Area 12 Conference in Las Vegas. Congratulations to Mike Mazzatenta! 

We had a total of 12 submission from eight composers — all excellent submissions. As chair of the committee, I was very excited to see so many pieces submitted for our consideration. I truly encourage all of these composers to keep writing, and get their pieces to publishers — I want to play those pieces!
