Composer Howard Frazin is the co-founder and Artistic Director of WordSong. He teaches composition at the New England Conservatory of Music where he is also the director of the CPR [Composer- Performer-Repertory] Ensemble. He recently served as the Boston Classical Orchestra’s Composer-in-Residence at the Boston Arts Academy. His music has been performed throughout the U.S. and abroad, including festivals at Tanglewood, Aspen, Banff, Rockport, Monadnock, Bowdoin, and Yellow Barn. Recent commissions include from Triple Helix, A Far Cry, the Claremont Trio, the Boston Classical Orchestra, the Fromm Foundation, World-wide Concurrent Premieres, the PALS Children’s Chorus, and Andover Chamber Players. The Claremont Trio’s premiere of Mr. Frazin’s piano trio on Dallas Chamber Music’s concert series was praised by the Dallas Morning News as “... [a] genuinely touching triptych, which wastes not a note,” and the performance made Scott Cantrell’s Top 10 Performances list for 2010. Mr. Frazin’s work is published by Peters Editions.
