He is currently on his second year of a Masters degree in composition at The Juilliard School, where he is studying with Melinda Wagner. At Juilliard he was awarded the 2018 annual orchestral composition competition award. As a result, his Nocturne for Violin, Piano, Harp and String Orchestra was performed at Alice Tully Hall (NY), by The Juilliard Orchestra. It was conducted by Jeffrey Milarsky. The soloists were Alice Ivy Pemberton and Aleksandra Kasman. This same work also received the 3rd prize in the 2018 Busan Maru International Composition Competition (South Korea).

He will be a 2020 artist in residence at the National Sawdust thanks to a Blueprint Fellowship and also a fellow in the 2020 Minnesota Orchestra Composer’s Institute.

He has also has written a sonata for violoncello and piano for Mark Pirhodko which is influenced by Catalan folklore and landscapes. On summer 2019 this work will be played on tour around Spain aimed at connecting American based musicians with local audiences. His lastest completed musical project has been the recording of his first CD (sponsored by the Joan Manén Association) with the National Orchestra of Ukraine and conductor Volodymir Sirenko, featuring three of his orchestral works (a Piano Concertino, a Catalan Fantasy and an Epitaphium for String Orcehstra) and 2 works by Catalan XXth century composer Joan Manén.

Marc Migó will be starting his DMA in composition at Juilliard on the fall of 2019, under the mentorship of John Corigliano. He is currently working on a song cicle based on the texts by Belarussian Nobel Prize winner Svetlana Aleksievich, which will be premiered during the 2019/2020 season at the National Sawdust in New York.
