Composer Information

Roger Lee Hall's music career began with songwriting during the 1960s. He composed many pop and jazz songs but they were not recorded or released commercially. During that time he began studies in piano and composition with Benjamin Hey Hissem, a highly accomplished teacher and musician.

In 1967, Roger was awarded a certificate with honors in music theory from Trinity College of Music in London, England.  

Two years later, he began composition studies at Rutgers University with distinguished composers, Robert Nagel and George Walker  -- the first African-American composer to be awarded the Pulitzer Prize in Music in 1996 .   Roger received a Bachelor of Arts degree in music theory and composition from Rutgers University in Newark (NCAS 1970). Several of his early compositions were performed while he was a composition student at Rutgers: "Variations on an Original Oriental Melody" (Op. 1a), "Percussion Quartet in Three Movements (Op. 2), and "songs of a haiku spring - for voice and piano" (Op. 3).

Two years later he received a Master of Arts in Ethnomusicology from Binghamton University in New York.  His thesis was titled: "The Shaker Letteral System: A Practical Approach to Music Notation." He also composed a set of piano variations on a Shaker marching tune (Op. 1b) and "Tricinium" for flute, oboe and basson (Op. 6).

In 1980, he had a consultation session with the distinguished composer, Aaron Copland, who complimented him on his arrangements of two Shaker songs: "Gentle Words" and "Love is Little" (Op. 8)

In 1985, Roger became a member of ASCAP (American Society of Composers, Authors and Publishers).

One year later, he formed PineTree Productions, a professional educational service, providing music books, CDs and DVDs, music lectures and workshops.

He has focuses on smaller ensembles such as two sets of piano variations, works for chamber ensembles, many solo songs and choral works, also numerous vocal arrangements.

In 1988, he composed a song in Russian, "A Gift Round" (Op. 18, No. 1) for the Sharing A New Song in Boston for their Russian tour to commemorate the millennium of the Russian Orthodox Church. The premiere of this song in Russia was the first time an American work had been performed in a joint concert of Russian and American choruses.

His environmental hymn, "Creator God, We Give Tou Thanks" (Op. 25), received a second place award in a Massachusetts choral music competition in 1993. This hymn was composed as a memoial for a musician friend. The same text and tune was later arranged for solo voice, chorus and piano (Op. 35).

His choral work titled A Shaker Song Triptych (May I Softly Walk, Gentle Words, Lovie is Little): received its world premiere in a Concert for Peace in 2004, performed by the Festival Choir in Stoughton, Wisconsin.

For his many musical accomplishments, Roger Lee Hall is currently listed in these respected directories:

Who's Who in America and Who's Who in the World.

To Gerhard, I dedicate this work with my respect and gratitude.
