Hi – I’m Joel and welcome to my website.
I am a composer, primarily of art songs and one-act operas. I live in Lexington, South Carolina with my darling wife and my crazy cat (although sometimes those adjectives are reversible). I like to play bridge, practice yoga (those pesky hamstrings) and read (which can often be code for “binge watch Netflix shows”).
Recent compositions include a book of songs in German to poetry by Heinrich Heine, a set of songs in Italian to poetry by Torquato Tasso, some choral music, an oboe sonata and I’m working on a piece for tenor and string quartet with poetry by Walt Whitman – “Vigil strange I kept in the field one night.”
Some of my music is for sale at Sheet Music Plus. Check here for more information.
Would love to hear from you. Contact me.
