Born: 14 March 1976
Biography: Robinson McClellan is a young American composer living in Connecticut. Recent commissions from Yale Schola Cantorum (Simon Carrington, director), New York City-based trio Eos, the Oregon Bach Festival Composers Symposium, Christ Church (New Haven, CT, Robert Lehman, director), and organist Carson Cooman have brought his music to audiences in the U.S. and Europe. His music covers a broad spectrum of styles and media, from chamber vocal music, experimental chamber music and orchestral compositions to choral church anthems. His work focuses on vocal music of all kinds, and he seeks new ways to approach traditional sacred musical forms and subject matter, including liturgical drama. He is currently studying composition at the Yale School of Music and Institute of Sacred Music, where he is conducting research into piobaireachd, the rarely heard, 17th-century classical music of the Highland bagpipe.
