Pegram has been awarded the 2019 James E. Croft Grant for Young and Emerging Wind Band Composers from the Atlantic Coast Conference Band Directors Association (ACCBDA). Pegram will create a new work for the ACCBDA, with up to 15 subsequent performances by the wind bands of the Atlantic Coast Conference.
Pegram’s Concerto for Alto Saxophone and Wind Ensemble has been awarded the Frederick Fennell Prize from the American Society of Composers, Authors & Publishers (ASCAP) and the College Band Directors National Association (CBDNA). Initiated in 2002, the ASCAP/CBDNA Frederick Fennell Young Composers Award is a biennial recognition of an outstanding new work for winds by a young American composer. The winning work is selected through a juried competition that attracts submissions from eligible composers from across the United States.
