Stephen Feigenbaum is a 21-year-old composer from Winchester, Massachusetts, who draws on aspects of popular music, from the grittiest to the most lyrical, to create works that make complexity accessible. Recently, Stephen was the winner of national composition competitions sponsored by the New York Art Ensemble, the Left Coast Chamber Ensemble, and the Palo Alto Chamber Orchestra, and international competitions sponsored by the Cambridge Chamber Singers and the Vancouver Chamber choir. Other awards have come from the International Society of Bassists, ASCAP, and youngARTS. His compositions have been performed in venues including Jordan Hall and the Hatch Shell in Boston, the Green Room in San Francisco, Lincoln Center in New York, and in cities from Vancouver to Berlin to Prague. One of his compositions was recorded by the Cincinnati Pops Orchestra, directed by Erich Kunzel, on a CD that has just been released by Telarc. Stephen is a junior at Yale and has studied with composers including Kathryn Alexander, Martin Bresnick, Michael Gandolfi, and Samuel Adler. He sings in the Yale Camerata and the Baker’s Dozen, an all-male a cappella group at Yale.
