Douglas Hedwig (b. 1951): The music of Douglas Hedwig has been performed throughout the U.S., Italy, Germany, England, Scotland, Belgium, South Korea, Thailand and Indonesia. Praised for the “coherent, yet adventurous character of his compositions” [Opus Klassiek, Netherlands), his music embraces “a wide range of musical styles…and showcases the eloquent sincerity of a contemporary American voice” [International Center for American Music].

His CD recording, Vibrant Colors: The Brass Music of Douglas Hedwig (on the MSR Classics label) has been hailed as “endlessly interesting” [Journal of the International Horn Society], and “energetic and colorful [Klassiek-Centraal, Belgium].

Winner of both the Gaetano Amadeo Prize (Italy) and The American Prize in composition, Hedwig is recipient of awards and honors from the Siena Art Institute (Italy), Brush Creek Foundation for the Arts, and the National Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences. Prior to turning his full creative attention to composition in 2012, he was a trumpet player with the Metropolitan Opera Orchestra for 27 years.

Dr. Hedwig is Professor Emeritus at the Conservatory of Music at Brooklyn College, and was formerly on the faculty of The Juilliard School (New York City).
