2022-2023 Bouman Fellows

Dylan Trần and Xenia St. Charles Iris Llyllyth

We are excited to announce that this year's Fellows are Dylan Trn who will work with The CYO and, Xenia St Charles Iris Llyllyth who will work with pianist Clare Longendyke.​

Composer Fellows receive: 

  • A $1000 commission to write a new piece to be premiered by The CYO Principals Quartet or Clare Longendyke

  • Workshops with the performing ensemble/soloist

  • Mentorship throughout the writing process with Kinds of Kings

  • A premiere of the commissioned work

The Kinds of Kings Bouman Fellowship is an advocacy, access, and amplification program for composers with historically-marginalized identities in the early stages of their composing careers. Named after computer scientist Dr Katie Bouman, whose team gave the world the first image of a black hole, the Bouman Fellowship program's goals are:

  • to support and advocate for early-career composers 

  • to create opportunities for composers from historically marginalized groups, and

  • to cultivate a sense of community and support.
