Hohnstein’s choral setting of “Do Not Stand at My Grave and Weep,” the 1932 poem by Mary Elizabeth Frye, won the American Choral Directors Association Raymond W. Brock Student Composition Competition (the “Brock”). Her entry was one of 50, and she will enjoy her composition’s premiere at the upcoming ACDA National Conference in Minneapolis in March.

An additional commissioned composition for children’s choir will be premiered at the 2017 OAKE National Conference, hosted by the Organization of American Kodaly Educators, in Philadelphia.

Congratulations, Kelsey!
