 Composer Fredo receives Artist Fellowship Award
from St. Louis Regional Arts Commission

Sheet Music Plus and Hal Leonard Publishing select "Twenty-Four Studies in African Rhythms" as winner for Best Educational Piano Work. 
(out of 2,800 total submissions during the contest period!)

Onovwerosuoke's rhythmic language would be worthy of analysis by students of the long process by which a common African-American language, musical and verbal, evolved out of the multiplicity of cultures of the enslaved. The overall effect is kinetic, colorful, and imposing — any symphonic programmer looking for music that will meet urban constituencies halfway should hear [his music]. 
- James Manheim (AllMusic.com critic)

Fred Onovwerosuoke's brief "Fanfare for Strings and Timpani," in its world premiere, was a rousing evocation of a Nigerian war dance, complete with the clanging of machetes -- fortunately only simulated.  -John von Rhein -(Chicago Tribune music critic)

...attractive, rather epigrammatic and made an immediate effect, a compelling mixture of technical challenges, memorable ideas and clever compositional working, none of which outstayed their welcome... - Review by Robert Matthew-Walker, ClassicalSource, London, UK.

..."The Gathering," an overture by Ghanaian-American composer Fred Onovwerosuoke was a brief, lively work propelled by rapid and aggressive African rhythms, creates a delicious sense of danger–all powerfully rendered by Marlon Daniel and his orchestra...
- Review by Victor Carr, Jr., ClassicsToday

The piano lines in [Fredo's "12 African Songs for Solo Voice and Piano"] are lively and catchy - indeed,  though their sources are more exotic than African-American spirituals or Langston  Hughes, the songs have the  most popular appeal of all the material  on this [Libera, AGCD 2106] recording. - Review by Chris King, The St Louis American

These kinetic pieces [Twenty-four Studies in African Rhythms] easily get under one’s skin and they sound like they are fun to play. - American Record Guide
