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.”

Here are some links to help you browse.

Some of my music is for sale at Sheet Music Plus. Check here for more information.

Would love to hear from you. Contact me.
Best,
Joel
