The Composers

The 70+ composers who have contributed to America/Beautiful offer a true cross-section of America, representing all ages, races, genders and backgrounds. The group includes multiple winners of Grammys, Emmys, MacArthur "Genius" Grants, Pulitzer, Grawemeyer, Guggenheim, Rome, and Doris Duke Prizes, and more.

"Discovery Composers" are Min Kwon's selections of new and undiscovered talents, chosen for their musical vision, deep passion and drive, humility, plus a certain sparkle in their personality!
