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.
Composer Ethan Boxley’s Fanfare for the National Anthem and his arrangement of National Anthem in G will be performed by the Fort Collins Symphony Orchestra during its upcoming July 7 (Red Feather Lakes) concert.
