Composer David Biedenbender strives to create music that is genuine, honest, and passionate—music that reflects his diverse interests, both as a musician and as a person. His experience as an electric bassist and euphonium player in jazz, rock and steelpan bands, concert bands, orchestras, various chamber groups, and as a church musician all play significant roles in his music.

David has had the privilege of collaborating with many talented performers and ensembles, including Maestro Leonard Slatkin and the Detroit Symphony Orchestra, eighth blackbird, the University of Michigan Symphony Orchestra, and the Central Michigan University Concert Choir and Symphony Orchestra. Recently, his music has been awarded the Third Millenium Ensemble’s Composition Prize, regional winner of the SCI/ASCAP Student Composer Commission Competition, honorable mention in the ASCAP/CBDNA Frederick Fennell Prize, and finalist for the ASCAP Morton Gould Young Composers Award, the Indianapolis Symphony Orchestra Glick Young Composers Competition, and the Frank Ticheli Band Composition Competition.

David is on the music composition/theory faculty of the Interlochen Arts Camp and will be the composer-in-residence with the Vivo Sinfonietta for the 2009-2010 season. Current commissions and projects include works for saxophonist Robert Young, the Washington Kantorei, the percussion group line upon line, and the Vivo Sinfonietta. His musical mentors include Michael Daugherty, Bright Sheng, Evan Chambers, Stephen Rush, David Gillingham, and José Luis-Maurtúa. He holds a Master of Music degree in music composition from the University of Michigan and a Bachelor of Music degree from Central Michigan University. He currently lives in Ann Arbor, Michigan with his wife, Angela.
