He won.

 

As part of the Georgia Music Educators Association (GMEA) composition competition, students from all across the state submit their musical masterpieces to be judged by professors and music educators. The pieces have to be ten minutes and written for up to eight voices or instruments. Jonathon’s winning piece “Elevator Music” was one of 14 pieces chosen.
