Kenneth David Stewart (BMI) is presently pursuing a Ph.D. in Music Composition at Duke University. His compositions cover a diverse range of genres, from chamber and vocal music to symphonic works and various works written for or containing electronics.
Most recently, his work 'thetastate' was given a studio recording by the jazz trio, THE BAD PLUS and will soon be released by Duke University in conjunction with the Duke Performances concert series.
Three of his orchestral pieces have been performed in concert by the Tucson Symphony Orchestra and his chamber works have been performed by various professional ensembles throughout the US and abroad.
In 2008, Kenneth won the ASCAP Foundation's Morton Gould Young Composer Award and he was the first honoree of the Young Composer’s Project from PRI’s From the Top public radio program.
