To commemorate 60 years, the Great Falls Symphony continues their proud tradition of commissioning a celebratory symphonic work. Benediction by Michael Djupstrom will be premiered by the orchestra at this, our season finale concert.

The work of this gifted composer and pianist has been recognized through honors and awards from institutions such as the American Academy of Arts and Letters, the Chinese Fine Arts Society, and the Académie musicale de Villecroze, among many others. Djupstrom was born in St. Paul, Minnesota in 1980. He studied composition at the University of Michigan and the Curtis Institute of Music. Other training included fellowships at the Tanglewood Music Center and the Aspen Music Festival, as well as studies in Paris with Betsy Jolas.
