Thomas Nicholson wins composition awards!
August 31, 2017
Congratulations to Thomas Nicholson, whose pieces MOTTE and ABOUT have won three first prizes from the SOCAN Foundation!
The SOCAN Foundation, founded in 1992, is dedicated to fostering Canadian music creation and promoting a better understanding of the role of music creators in today’s society. The SOCAN Foundation is an independent organization guided by its own board of directors. The board, which consists of songwriters, composers and music publishers, reflects popular music and concert music genres as well as the geographic and linguistic regions of Canada.
Thomas has been our Parish Choir Director this past year and a CCC Organ and Choral Scholar.
He is heading to the Universitat der Kunste, Berlin this fall, where he’ll be studying for his Masters in Music Composition.
