Randall Davidson


Randall Davidson (General Director) is active as a composer, producer, teacher, arts administrator, and cellist. His catalogue of works has enjoyed hundreds of performances throughout the U.S. and Europe. He has composed dozens of choral works, a church opera, four ballets, a comic oratorio and a work for orchestra for Garrison Keillor, a guitar concert with big band orchestra, chamber works, three orchestral works that have received over 200 performances, television commercials (including four NIKE operas), incidental music for theater and puppets, a major sound installation to inaugurate the Minnesota Children’s Museum, and music for jazz and wind ensembles. More information is available at www.boysartmusic.com.

His first musical experience was singing "Jesus Loves Me" for the Women's Circle in the basement of First United Methodist Church in Lincoln, Nebraska when he was two years old. About 30 years later, he wrote a theme and variations on that melody called The Young Lutheran's Guide to the Orchestra with narration by Garrison Keillor. That work has had over 200 performances, a Disney Channel broadcast, and two commercial recordings. The great lesson that he passes along to every one of his students is that one must never scoff at what one can learn in a church basement.

Randall's responsibilities include program planning, artist and student recruitment, fund-raising, board relations, and telling Junior Composers story. He can help you with questions about writing for orchestra and the New Symphonies opportunity, the Workshop, and questions about any aspect of Junior Composers programs.
