Kyle Randall has had premieres across the world from Carnegie Hall to La Schola Cantorum in Paris, and he has worked closely with prominent groups and conductors around the country. In his music, Kyle strives for vividness and sincerity; his music often evokes strong notions of color, motion and space, and he uses these to create compelling pieces that exist in their own worlds, each with their won character and a strong sense of place. Listeners have commented on his directness and clarity of expression, and appreciate his willingness to draw on the past as well as the present in his writing. Kyle holds degrees in composition from San Francisco Conservatory (MM), where he studied with David Garner, and Harvard (BA), where he studied with Chaya Czernowin, Hans Tutschku, Richard Beaudoin, and Trevor Baca. He has been awarded the Francis Boott Prize for choral composition from Harvard, and is currently a finalist for the prestigious American Prize in composition for the Kyrie of his recent “New Gothic Mass”. He is also serving as Composer-in-Residence for the Empire City Men’s Chorus this year.
