Graduate student and composer Dennis Belisle

Dennis Belisle, graduating in December with a Master of Music, received the inaugural Robert W. Pedersen Memorial Research Award this fall. The funding he received from this award is going toward allowing the members of the Knoxville Symphony Orchestra to perform his compositions during a special concert at 8 p.m. on Friday, November 15, at the Powell Recital Hall in the Natalie L. Haslam Music Center. You can listen to samples of Belisle’s work on his website, and learn more about him and his work on Tennessee Today.
