Berklee Master’s Alumna Amie Doherty Receives Prestigious ASCAP Foundation Film and TV Award

Berklee master’s alumna, Amie Doherty, has been awarded the prestigious ASCAP (American Society of Composers, Authors and Publishers) Foundation Harold Arlen Film & TV Award and was named as a composer to watch in ASCAP’s 2013 Composer Spotlight.

One of only 12 aspiring composers worldwide selected to attend the legendary ASCAP TV & Film Scoring Workshop in Los Angeles, Doherty’s music was performed and recorded by the Hollywood Studio Symphony, a 61-piece orchestra, on the Newman Scoring Stage at 20th Century Fox Studios. Following the workshop, she was honored with the award and also featured in The Hollywood Reporter and Vanity magazine.

Doherty, 26, of Galway, Ireland, was awarded the Howard Shore scholarship and graduated magna cum laude from Berklee’s inaugural master’s program in Scoring for Film, TV, and Video Games at Berklee’s Valencia campus in July 2013. Prior to Berklee, she attended Trinity College in Dublin, Ireland, graduating with a bachelor's degree in music and majoring in music technology. She grew up surrounded by classical and traditional music and began studying piano at age 4.

Since graduating from the Valencia campus and embarking on her professional career as a composer, Doherty has also scored the music for a number of short films, and has been chosen as one of just four composers to attend the highly competitive Society of Composers and Lyricists (SCL) Mentor Program in spring 2014.
