Ellee Land, daughter of Sarah and David Land, entered the Creating Original Music Project at the University of Missouri where she received Honorable Mention. Her composition, entitled Memory, was a clarinet solo with piano accompaniment. Ellee had to submit the written work and a recording of her piece. The judges commented they appreciated her submitting a live performance, that showed her dedication to her craft outside of this single composition and that she had a lovely theme. They invited her to attend the 2021 Missouri Summer Composition Institute, which is a virtual camp for students studying music composition. Ellee is a junior at Greenfield High School and studies piano and participates in Band and Choir.
Great job, Ellee!
