“Legend Seekers” Awarded Silver in the GMAs

I was thrilled to discover this morning that my April 2019 album Legend Seekers won the Silver Medal for Outstanding Achievement in the composer/composition category of the Global Music Awards!

I am so honored (and validated)!

If you haven’t already, go take a listen to Legend Seekers today!

Wut?! I won??! No wai! (Akademia Awards)

OMG! I’m a two-time May 2016 Akademia Award winner!!! ? I seriously was not expecting to get this news…I’m really very honored. 🙂

It’s kind of like being recognized into a ground-floor, elite club of sorts. But, wow, the comments I received are just super nice! Good to add to my portfolio. And–the fact that my music is recognized in a place that doesn’t even have a Classical category? To me, that encourages me that my music really is quite complex and unusual and yet…very easy to absorb and appreciate.”

Pretty cool! ?

‘Sarah Wallin Huff works with a palette of sounds in a way that mere humans can only distantly discern – this single is an ambient instrumental masterpiece of classical and modern moods.’ (See my Best Song award here.)

‘Memories And The Gray’ is aptly named – its varying moods convey a rich insight into the creative mind behind the work; sometimes joyous of temperament, elsewise wistful, but always inventive.’ (See my Best EP award here.)

Photos from DRHS Awards Event

Last night I participated in the annual Awards Banquet for the Music Department of Diamond Ranch High School, celebrating the students’ achievements this past year in the Band, Orchestra, and Pageantry. This was the first year I was able to come support them as their Strings Coach! Sadly, it will also be my last, in the forseeable future… It was at this event that I was able to take the opportunity to announce my departure as their Coach (for reasons I will be announcing VERY soon — I am embarking on a HUGE change in my life), after some 5 or 6 years (minimum!) of teaching there.

And the students were absolutely warm and loving that night toward me, blessing me with shouts and cries (I was the coach with the grandest adulation, every time I crossed the stage!!!) and heartwarming gifts of personal and sentimental value which I will treasure always — I will miss them greatly! 😥

I enjoy them and love them so very much!

If you’re able, be sure to catch my performance with them, as they perform my “Courage Triptych” in its entirety for the first time!
