Edie Hill’s music is performed all over the globe.  Venues have been as diverse as Lincoln Center, Musis Sacrum (Arnhem the Netherlands) to the Minnesota State Fair and local cafes. Her music has been performed by flutist, Linda Chatterton, Cantus, The Rose Ensemble, Tantalus Guitar Quartet, The Estonian Philharmonic Chamber Choir and Nederlands Kamerkoor , Ruth Palmer, KrisAnne Weiss, Zeitgeist, The Singers, Cape May Festival Chamber Orchestra (NJ), Amarillo Symphony Orchestra and members of the Minnesota Orchestra, Louisville, and CharlestonSymphony Orchestras.

As Composer-in-Residence at St. Paul’s The Schubert Club, she runs the Composer Mentorship Program where she has mentored nearly 40 composers of high school age over the past 11 seasons.   She has also been in residence, given workshop and lectures at Tufts University, Syracuse University, The Conservatory at Arnhem, The Netherlands, Delft University of Technology, The Netherlands to name a few.

A three-time McKnight Artist Fellow and a two-time Bush Artist Fellow, Hill has received grants from the Jerome Foundation, ASCAP, Meet The Composer and Chamber Music America. Commissions come from such diverse sources as elite professionals to community and amateur groups.  One of Hill's strengths as a composer is the ability to write well for musicians of all skill levels.  Whether she is composing a virtuosic piece to show off a soloist’s expertise or a work that leads a choir of untrained voices through a gratifying and meaningful musical experience, for Hill the music comes from the same place.  Writing music is always an opportunity to research, learn, muse, reach down deep, and allow inspiration to come from the stuff of life.

She is currently teamed up with The Crossing conducted by Donald Nally and PARMA Recordings creating an album of her music for chamber choir to be released in early 2017.
