Biography
American composer Michael Hosford is from Woodbine, Maryland.  He studied at Oberlin Conservatory with trombonist/composer Raymond Premru and at the Aspen Music Festival with composer Charles Jones, and later moved to New York to complete Bachelors and Masters degrees in trombone performance at the Juilliard School.

Alongside a performing career, he has been composing and arranging music since he was 13.  His works range from solo to symphonic, but he enjoys writing odd little pieces for odd little groups of instruments. His concert music has been performed at Lincoln Center and broadcast on WNCN radio in New York City, and his brass fanfares have been heard on Young People’s Concerts at the Colorado Music Festival and have inspired (or at least awakened) patrons on opening nights at the Sarasota Opera.   His music has been performed throughout the country, including on the San Marco Chamber Music Society, Friday Musicale, and Riverside Fine Arts concert series in Jacksonville, Florida, at the Aspen Music Festival, and on the Pan Harmonia concert series in Asheville, North Carolina, where he now resides with his wife, violinist Karen Pommerich.
