Benjamin Boone



Benjamin Boone was born and raised in the small textile town of Statesville, N.C. Since then, his compositions have been performed in over twenty-four countries — from Carnegie Hall, the Kennedy Center and Disney Hall to China, Japan, Australia, Africa, South American and Eastern/Western Europe — and appear on over twenty CDs of performers/groups such as the Electronic Music Foundation, Vox Novus, the National Flute Choir and the New Century Saxophone Quartet. His works have also been featured in film (Guy Livingston's One Minute More), and have been the subject of stories aired on National Public Radio's "Weekend Edition" (his native-american themed cantata "Ascencion"), Bavarian National Radio (multiple projects), California Public Radio's "The California Report" (his mariachi-themed orchestral work "Fresno Sin Frenos"), and French television. In 2012 French saxophonists hosted a two-day conference in Bordeaux with the theme "The Saxophone Music of Benjamin Boone." His works have garnered over eighteen national/international honors and awards from the International Society of Contemporary Music, the Olympia International Prize for Composition, Billboard Magazine, the National Association of Composers, The American Music Center, the American Composer's Forum, ASCAP, Meet the Composer/Southeastern Arts Federation, the National Flute Association, the Southeastern Composers' League, the Delius Foundation, and Boston University, among others.
