Jules Pegram (b.1991) strives to compose music elegant in its construction and meticulously well-crafted, full of shimmering color, boundless energy, and an unbridled lyricism that makes it refreshingly direct. His works have been performed by the New World Symphony, the Cabrillo Festival Orchestra, the American Composers Orchestra, Symphony in C, the Naples Philharmonic, and the Indianapolis Symphony Orchestra, among others, and have been recorded by the Hollywood Studio Symphony at Warner Bros. Studios and 20th Century Fox Studios in Los Angeles. Film work includes collaborations dating back to his years at USC to work for the Traverse City Film Festival and participation in both the ASCAP Film Scoring Workshop in Los Angeles with Richard Bellis and the inaugural Los Angeles Film Conducting Intensive with David Newman and Angel Velez. Pegram received the ASCAP Foundation Harold Arlen Film & TV Award, presented each summer to an outstanding writer who has participated in the ASCAP Film Scoring Workshop. Pegram earned Doctorate and Master's degrees in Composition from the University of Michigan (2018, 2015) after receiving the Bachelor of Music in Composition from the University of Southern California (2013), studying with multiple GRAMMY Award-winner Michael Daugherty, Oscar nominee Bruce Broughton, Erica Muhl, and Morten Lauridsen, among others. Pegram lives in Los Angeles, where he can just as easily be found catching a screening at the ArcLight-Hollywood or a concert at Disney Hall as he can cruising the freeways in search of the ultimate taco.
