“Vicious Circles” To Be Performed on January 28, 2017

Scott Lee‘s “Vicious Circles” was read in March 2016 by the North Carolina Symphony as part of a year-long engagement between the Duke University Department of Music and the NCS, including symposia, concerts, visiting composers and conductors, and courses devoted to the large ensemble and its repertoire. The program was made possible in part by a gift from alumna Penka Kouneva (Ph.D. 1997).

In addition to winning Symphony In C‘s Young Composers’ Competition, Lee has been admitted as a Composition Fellow at the 2017 Aspen Music Festival. He is currently pursuing his Ph.D. in composition at Duke University, mentored by Scott Lindroth and Stephen Jaffe.

He is not the first Duke graduate student to win Symphony In C’s Young Composers’ Competition. Amy Scurria (Ph.D. 2015) won the 1997-98 competition with her work “Beyond All Walking.”
