Read a little about our composers featured on this concert:

Freddie Mercury was born on the Tanzanian island of Zanzibar. His parents, Bomi and Jer Bulsara, sent him off to a private school in India, from 1955 til 1963. In 1964 Freddie and his family flew to England. Freddie Mercury, the lead singer of the hard-rock group Queen. As the lead singer and lyricist for Queen, Mr. Mercury helped to forge a hugely popular hybrid of hard-rock, pop, heavy-metal, cabaret and a hint of opera. In its mid-1970’s heyday, the group created an image of playful decadence while fabricating elaborate studio productions on its albums, overdubbing multiple guitar and vocal lines. Mr. Mercury strutted and preened, by turns campy and almost militaristic, at the center of Queen’s stage shows.

Cole Porter was born in Indiana in 1891. A talented composer and songwriter, Porter handled both music and lyrics with ease, and conquered Broadway and Hollywood with his witty songs. His work includes “Night and Day” and “I’ve Got You Under My Skin.” However, his life was marred by a 1937 riding accident that left him unable to walk. He died in California in 1964, having written more than 800 songs.

Elizabeth Alexander grew up in the Carolinas and Appalachian Ohio, the daughter of a piano teacher and a minister. I studied piano and composition at The College of Wooster and Cornell University. Since receiving my doctorate, she has received many commissions from choirs, orchestras and chamber ensembles, and served as a composer-in-residence at over a dozen schools, arts programs and churches in 6 states. I have a passion for the English language which nearly eclipses my love of music. Alexander has written over 100 songs, on texts by poets, preachers, sages, ordinary people, and herself. Since 1997 she have published her own music through Seafarer Press and has now publish over 80 choral titles.

Award-winning composer J. David Moore has had works performed and recorded all over the world, and is especially enamored with the romance of word and melody. He is a member of the Independent Music Publishers Cooperative, and publishes through his company Fresh Ayre Music. He is the founder and music director of The First Readings Project, a professional chamber choir founded to help assist composers in the development of new work. He was tenor section leader with the Dale Warland Singers, founded and directed two professional a cappella groups, taught composition at the St. Paul Conservatory and Valley City State University, and is Director of Music at Nativity Episcopal Church in Burnsville.

Joan Szymko, born in 1957, is a composer and conductor from the Pacific Northwest. With a catalog of over 100 published choral works, her music is performed by ensembles across North America and abroad. Abundant lyricism, rhythmic integrity and vigorous attention to text are hallmarks of Szymko’s diverse and distinctive choral writing. Fresh and inspiring, her text selections are as notable as her music. Especially significant is Szymko’s contribution to the body of quality literature for women’s voices. Her music has received performances at regional, national and international choral festivals, competitions and conferences, notably at six consecutive National Conferences of the American Choral Directors Association (2003-2013). Most recently she has been commissioned by the Eugene Vocal Arts Ensemble to compose a large scale work for chorus and orchestra focusing on those stricken with Alzheimer’s disease and other forms of memory loss and their caregivers.
