 Update me on new releases by McTee

Cindy McTee (b01/01/1953)

Hailed by critics as a composer whose music reflects a ‘charging, churning celebration of the musical and cultural energy of modern-day America,’ Cindy McTee ‘brings to the world of concert music a fresh and imaginative voice.’ Born in 1953 in Tacoma, WA, she began piano studies at the age of six with a teacher who encouraged improvisation. This eventually led to composition in many forms including jazz, orchestral, chamber, and electronic music. Another influential teacher was the eminent Polish composer, Krzysztof Penderecki, with whom McTee studied for three years.

McTee has received numerous awards for her music, most significantly the Detroit Symphony Orchestra’s third annual Elaine Lebenbom Memorial Award, a Music Alive Award from Meet The Composer and the League of American Orchestras, two awards from the American Academy of Arts and Letters, a Guggenheim Fellowship, a Fulbright Fellowship, a Composers Fellowship from the National Endowment for the Arts, and a BMI Student Composers Award. She was also winner of the 2001 Louisville Orchestra Composition Competition.
