Boston area composer Marc Hoffeditz has written for various ensembles and performers, from full orchestra to a dancing violinist. Recently focusing on dramatic vocal works, his works explore numerous nostalgic undertones through various textual sources including Peter Pan and Anne Sexton. Among his varied musical inspirations, he enjoys the challenge of balancing sarcasm, pathos, and humor. Recent activities include Hartford Opera Theatre’s New in November Festival and Rhymes with Opera: Pocket Opera Workshop. Upcoming commissions include a work for the Fourth Wall Ensemble featuring Elisabeth Halliday and a brief opera about Canadian poet El Jones. Marc graduated from the Boston Conservatory and Christopher Newport University, studying with Andy Vores, Marti Epstein, Dalit Warshaw, and Christopher Cook.
