Shirl Jae Atwell

Shirl Jae Atwell

Shirl Jae Atwell earned a bachelor of music education from Kansas State Teachers College, a master of music theory/composition degree from the University of Louisville, and completed four years of post-graduate work in composition at the University of South Carolina.

An active composer with many commissions and publications to her credit, Ms. Atwell was named the 1996 winner of the National School Orchestra Association composition contest with her string orchestra piece Modus a 4. She is also the 1997 winner of the Texas Orchestra Directors Association composition contest with a string orchestra piece entitled Drifen. Another project, Lucy, with music by Ms. Atwell and choreography by Alun Jones, was premiered by the Louisville Ballet in 1999. Inspired by the discovery of a 3.2 million-year old skeleton, Lucy was the subject of a Kentucky Education Television documentary that aired the same year.

In June 2000, the televised production of Lucy was awarded the Arts & Culture Emmy by the Ohio Valley Chapter of the National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences. One month later, a Certificate of Merit was awarded to Lucy by Unda-USA, the National Catholic Association for program performance. In 2002, the Greensboro Symphony Orchestra of North Carolina recorded the music to the ballet Lucy which is available on Albany Records. The CD also includes the orchestral suite Movements Four South, and three string orchestra works: Pulsar, Meander, and Drifen.

Ms. Atwell serves as a full-time string orchestra educator with the Jefferson County Public Schools in Louisville, Kentucky. She maintains active membership with ASCAP, Music Educators National Conference, ASTA with NSOA, Texas Orchestra Directors Association, and Kentucky Music Educators Association.
