Ethan Boxley is an up and coming young composer. He is a senior completing a Bachelor of Music in Composition at Northwestern University’s Bienen School of Music. His goal is to compose music which is beautiful and accessible, and also incorporates the complexity of earlier forms. His compositional interests include the use of early forms in modern contexts, and the use of pitches and rhythms made by water and other natural sounds in combination with more tonal musical elements. His works have won a number of competitions and have been performed by the Spektral Quartet, Fort Collins Symphony, Northwestern’s Renaissance Singers, Denver’s Playground Ensemble and NoCo Artists.
This program of original compositions by Ethan Boxley is being presented in partial fulfillment of the requirements for a Bachelor of Music degree.
