ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Meira Warshauer’s works have been performed and recorded to critical acclaim throughout the United States and in Israel, Europe, South America, and Asia. Her music reflects her personal spiritual journey and communicates directly to the heart and soul of the listener.

She has received numerous awards from ASCAP and Meet the Composer, as well as the American Music Center. Warshauer was twice awarded the Artist Fellowship in Music by the S.C. Arts Commission, in 1994and 2005; and in 2000, received the first Art and Cultural Achievement Award from the Jewish Historical Society of South Carolina. Her composition, Yishakeyni (Sweeter than Wine) received the Miriam Gideon Award from the International Association of Women in Music call for scores, 2004. She is a Visiting Lecturer at Columbia College, Columbia, SC, where she teaches The Healing Art of Music, a cross-cultural, multidisciplinary approach to music as a source of healing.

Warshauer has devoted much of her creative output to Jewish themes and their universal message. In 2002, Israeli national radio broadcast an hour-long program of her music. In 2006, the Slovak Radio Symphony Orchestra performed Ahavah and Shacharit in a concert broadcast on Slovak National Radio and webcast internationally. Her work also reflects a love and respect for the earth. Her Symphony No.1: Living, Breathing Earth , commissioned by a consortium of three orchestras, was featured in a sound profile on the national PRI radio program "Living on Earth" during the symphony's 2007 premiere season.

Commissions have come from Dayton Philharmonic Orchestra, South Carolina Philharmonic (four orchestra works), Western Piedmont Symphony, violinist Daniel Heifetz, flutist Paula Robison, clarinetist Richard Nunemaker, the Zamir Chorale of Boston in consortium with the Rottenberg Chorale (NYC), Zemer Chai (Washington, DC), Gratz College (Philadelphia), and Kol Dodi (New Jersey); Mak'hela and Temple Sinai (Amherst and Springfield, MA); the Wilmington(NC) Choral Society, Congregation Children of Israel (Augusta, GA), Temple Israel (Natick, MA), Columbia College, University of South Carolina, Upton Trio, and the Cantors Assembly.

Streams in the Desert, an all Warshauer CD with music for orchestra and chorus inspired by the Torah, was released by Albany Records in fall, 2007. It contains Ahavah (Love), Shacharit (the Sabbath Service), and Like Streams in the Desert, recorded by the Slovak Radio Symphony Orchestra and Slovak Philharmonic Chorus, Kirk Trevor conducting, with vocal soloists Jennifer Hines, Michael Hendrick, Stephanie Gregory, and narrator Carol Potter. Other recordings include YES! recorded by Richard Stoltzman and the Warsaw Philharmonic on Perspectives, MMC (2007); the soundtrack to the documentary Land of Promise: The Jews of South Carolina and Spirals of Light on the Kol Meira label; Revelation for orchestra, on Robert Black Conducts, MMC; Bati l'Gani (I entered My Garden) recorded by Paula Robison and Cyro Baptista on Places of the Spirit, distributed by the Pucker Gallery, Boston; and Shevet Achim (Brothers Dwell) for two bass clarinets, recorded by Richard Nunemaker on The Louisville Project, Arizona University Recordings.

Warshauer graduated from Harvard University (B.A. magna com laude), New England Conservatory of Music (M.M. with honors), and the University of South Carolina (D.M.A.), and studied composition with Mario Davidovsky, Jacob Druckman, William Thomas McKinley, and Gordon Goodwin.

Warshauer’s music is published by MMB, Oxford University Press, World Music Press, and Kol Meira Publications. Representation by Jeffrey James Arts Consulting, New York, 516-586-3433, jamesarts@worldnet.att.net.
