Randy Svane directs the Upper School Chorale and Mastersingers.
Randy’s music has been performed by The New York Philharmonic, the Orchestra da Camera Fiorentina in Florence, the Munich Chamber Choir, the Schola Cantorum Leipzig, the Leipzig Vocal Ensemble, the Vratsa Philharmonic in Bulgaria, the Cincinnati Chamber Orchestra, Santa Fe's Twentieth Century Unlimited, the Minneapolis Artists Ensemble, and the Borromeo String Quartet.
His achievements have been recognized through grants, prizes, and awards from ASCAP, Meet the Composer, the American Music Center, the New Jersey State Council on the Arts, the Geraldine R. Dodge Foundation, the Astral Foundation, and the Jerome Foundation. His extensive catalogue includes orchestral, chamber, operatic, and choral works.
In a recent review in The Strad, critic Dennis Rooney had this to say about Svane's second string quartet: "A short Presto with pizzicato effects led to a slow finale that contained a fugal episode but was tinged throughout with the profound sadness of Shostakovich and the Richard Strauss of Metamorphosen.”
