Bio

A recent graduate from Yale University — where they studied with Joshua Rosenblum and Kathryn Alexander, among others — Brin Solomon writes music full of metric vigor, open harmonies, and flowing, lyrical melodies. Their original full–length musical, Window Full of Moths, has been praised by reviewers for its “extraordinary soul stirring songs” that “add magic to otherwise common lives”. They are an active believer in the ideal of the performer–composer, and recently gave the première of their bassoon sonata, Rotational Games in the fall of 2015. Their works have been performed by the Yale Concert Band, the Harkness Tower Guild of Carillonneurs, and members of Chicago’s Fifth House Ensemble, among others. After spending two years working as an archivist and assistant to Michael Feinstein in Los Angeles (including arranging several American standards for Mr Feinstein to sing in concert at Carnegie Hall), they are currently enrolled in the Graduate Musical Theatre Writing Program at NYU/Tisch.
