(b 1954 )

Choral music is just one of the many interests of Glenn Buhr. His compositions show influences that range from the classical tradition to jazz, Broadway and music of the near East and India. A composer, music curator, producer, band leader, teacher and improvisational pianist, he holds degrees in music from the University of Manitoba, UBC and the University of Michigan. In the 1990s, as composer-in-residence with the Winnipeg Symphony Orchestra, he co-founded and acted as curator of the Winnipeg New Music Festival, one of the most successful of its kind in the world. He has composed on commission for the Montreal and Toronto Symphony Orchestras, and his works have been performed by the Detroit Symphony Orchestra, the BBC Symphony, the London Sinfonia, the Birmingham Royal Ballet, and pianist Louis Lortie. As well as a talented jazz pianist and recording artist, Buhr has also composed several scores for film and theatre. He is currently on faculty in the Contemporary Music Program at Wilfrid Laurier University, and the artistic director of the Kitchener-Waterloo Symphony’s New Orchestra Series and NUMUS concerts.
