Described as one of the "top 35 female composers in classical music" by critic Anne Midgette of the Washington Post, Valerie Coleman is among the world's most played composers living today. The Boston Globe describes Coleman as a having a “talent for delineating form and emotion with shifts between ingeniously varied instrumental combinations” and The New York Times observes her compositions as “skillfully wrought, buoyant music.” With works that range from flute sonatas that recount the stories of trafficked humans during Middle Passage and orchestral and chamber works based on nomadic Roma tribes, to scherzos about moonshine in the Mississippi Delta region and motifs based from Morse Code, her body of works have been highly regarded as a deeply relevant contribution to modern music.
Faculty member Richard Masters is a soloist, opera coach, chamber musician, and orchestral pianist. Significant collaborations include concerts with baritone Donnie Ray Albert, mezzo-soprano Kathryn Findlen, mezzo-soprano Barbara Conrad, and many others. He has appeared with former Boston Symphony principal trombonist Norman Bolter, former Juilliard String Quartet violinist Earl Carlyss, saxophonist Harvey Pittel, and under the baton of Lorin Maazel. Masters has performed solo, chamber, and vocal recitals throughout the U.S. and in Europe.
