Wallace De Pue compositions performed at Butler University
Composer Wallace De Pue Sr., of Bowling Green, recently had two compositions performed at Butler
University in Indianapolis.
De Pue entered his "Fiddlers Contest" into the university composition competition. While the
first prize went to another work, he was selected to serve as guest composer at the school. He spent six
days on campus teaching graduate and undergraduate students.
Last Sunday the university’s wind ensemble, conducted by called Bob Grechetski, performed both ‘Fiddlers
Contest" as well as De Pue’s "Serenade."
De Pue’s youngest son, Zachary De Pue, concertmaster of the Indianapolis Symphony, was the soloist for
the concert.
"Fiddlers Contest," De Pue said, is a musical portrait of the kind of contests his four sons
participated in when they were youngsters.
