[realname-node-author]

"The overall effect of [Hill's] music is an evocation of magic."

From orchestra to solo, epigram to epic, Edie Hill's music unfolds itself seamlessly in all spaces and idioms. Hill (b. 1962, New York City), currently Artist-in-Residence at St. Paul's Schubert Club, is a nationally acclaimed composer whose vocal and instrumental works are frequently performed both internationally and throughout the United States. Audiences have heard her compositions performed at the Bruno Walter Auditorium at Lincoln Center, the LA County Museum of Art's Monday Evening Concert Series, Minneapolis' Walker Art Center, the New York City Downtown Arts Festival, the New Music Chicago Spring Festival, Boston's Jordan Hall, the New Jersey Cape May Festival and the Schubert Club of St. Paul, MN.

Her often-performed choral music has been sung by the Dale Warland Singers, the Rose Ensemble, VocalEssence, Cantus and the Harmonium Choral Society, as well as by collegiate choirs throughout North America. Hill's solo vocal works have been performed by Glenda Maurice, KrisAnne Weiss, Mary Westbrook-Geha and Eleanor Taylor.
