Wyatt Boggs has won the Wind Ensemble category of the 2016-17 Azusa Pacific University/J. W. Pepper High School Composition Contest for his composition Ex Luna Scientia.

Wyatt Boggs is a junior at Clear Fork High School in Bellville, Ohio. He is heavily involved in his high schools band and choir as well as his own jazz band, youth or orchestra and BGSU top honors band and district concert band.

His piece, Ex Luna Scientia, is based on NASA’s Apollo 13 mission. The piece vividly describes their journey from start to end and evokes the feelings and milestones of the mission.

For future endeavors, Wyatt hopes to attend The University of Cincinnati for Commercial Music Production and gain a Ph.D at an undecided university in California. Then, he has plans to compose scores for film and musicals as well as conduct and perform in concert bands and orchestras.
