Photo of Jeff Manookian - Guest Artist A recent recipient of a commission from the Barlow Endowment for Music Composition at Brigham Young University to compose a concerto for flute and orchestra to be premiered by the Salt Lake Symphony, Jeff Manookian has garnered numerous accolades for his original works. The Frederick Delius Competition conferred its Grand Prize on Manookian's Fantasy and Toccata for Violin and Piano and the chamber music first prize for his Sonata for Flute and Piano. His compositions have figured numerous times on the Frederick Delius Music Festival in Jacksonville, Florida. Other top prizes have been awarded to Manookian's works, including the Grand Prize and multiple first places in the Composers Guild International Composition Competition.
Several of Manookian's compositions are in print with Warner Brothers Publications, Inc. Among the pieces published by Warner Brothers is Manookian's Twelve Etudes for the Intermediate Pianist-a commission from the Utah Music Teachers Association. Additional Manookian works have been published by Feature Films for Families and Windsor Editions.
Subsequent composition commissions have come from the Abramyan String Quartet, Utah Flute Association, Utah Centennial Commission, Episcopal Diocese of Utah, Cathedral of the Madeline, Utah Arts Council and the National Endowment for the Arts, Westminster College, and Sandy City, Utah for the grand opening of its new amphitheatre.
Manookian's music has been performed at the Kennedy Center in Washington D.C. and broadcast live over the internet. Ensembles such as the Czech Radio Symphony Orchestra (in Boston's Symphony Hall and in Prague), Pasadena Symphony, Fresno Philharmonic, Armenian Philharmonic Orchestra, Utah Symphony, University Musical Society of Las Vegas, the America West Symphony, Salt Lake Symphony, Westminster Chamber Orchestra, Intermountain Classical Orchestra, Gloriana Choir, Contemporary Music Consortium, Monticello Medici Chamber Ensemble (in Pasadena, California) and numerous choirs and instrumental soloists have included Manookian's works on their concert rosters.
Manookian's Symphony of Tears for the mezzo-soprano, boy soprano, choir and orchestra, a commemorative oratorio of the 1915 American Genocide, received its premiere this year by the Oratorio Society of Utah as the opening concert of the 2000 Madeline Festival for the Arts and Humanities.
