WRR 101 Focus on the Arts: Meet the Pulitzer Prize-nominated 27-year-old composer from Arlington, TX, making his Dallas Winds debut

“It’s music that is this mixture of contemporary classical music, with jazz, with R&B, with hip hop, with fusion,” says Kevin Day, describing his Pulitzer Prize-nominated Concerto for Wind Ensemble. “It’s just telling a narrative about how fun this music is – It’s meant to be fun, it’s meant to be enjoyable.” The Dallas Winds are bringing the work to DFW audiences in a concert on April 25 at the Meyerson Symphony Center. In this feature, Day chats with WRR’s Amy Bishop about his meteoric path to success as a composer still in his 20s.
