The catalog of Olly Wilson includes works for chamber ensembles and electronic media, but he is primarily known as a composer of orchestral music. Widely acclaimed as one of the nation's finest and most successful African American composers, his works have been performed by most major orchestras of the United States, as well as several European orchestras. His works have been commissioned by the Chicago Symphony and New York Philharmonic orchestras. Wilson is Professor Emeritus at the University of California Berkeley, where he served for several years at the Chair of the Music Department. In 1995 he was elected to the American Academy of Arts and Letters.
