Pulitzer Prize winner Jennifer Higdon maintains a full schedule of commissions and her music is known for its technical skill and audience appeal.

"There's something very American in the sound of her music, and something I'm tempted to call joyful--not in terms of what is expressed...but in how it is expressed. She is a composer in love with composing." -The Baltimore Sun
