Frank E. Warren, Composer
A versatile 21st century composer and arranger, Frank E. Warren’s passion is rooted in early 20th century music. Influences however range from Monteverdi to John Coltrane to Ralph Vaughn Williams and Erik Satie. Of course Bach and Beethoven are very high on his list yet the people he respects most are those teachers who helped him find his own voice. Chief among them John Bavicchi, Jeronimas Kacinskas, Tom McGah, Bill Maloof, Hugo Norden and Alma Espinosa were each essential. This versatility is evident in his choral, chamber, orchestra, jazz, and vocal works - as well as in his collaborations with poets, visual artists, and with modern dance companies throughout the United States.
