The Heartland Symphony Orchestra of Minnesota selected Subterfuge as its 2014 Composers’ Competition Winner. The competition received submissions from New Zealand, South Africa, Germany, Australia, and the United States. "Kenyon Wilson’s composition Subterfuge received the top honor for its clear sense of direction, harmony, structure, and rhythm. All the parts are idiomatic and every player’s or section’s part is equally involved and important in bringing the piece to life."
