Conner McCain is a composer, organist, and philosopher, and is currently an MMus student in Composition at the Catholic University of America in Washington, D.C.. Most of his music is a meditation on the balance, conflict, and intimacy of the traditional with and against the modern, and is an attempt to bring the two into a single, coherent musical expression. His works have been performed all over the world by ensembles such as Voces8 and the Red Note Ensemble, and he has participated in festivals and masterclasses in St. Andrews, Scotland, Eugene, Oregon, and Washington, D.C. This summer he will have two works premiered. The first is lucernarium i
during an organ recital, given by the composer, on the Isle of Wight in England. The second is lucernarium ii
at the highSCORE festival in Pavia, Italy for the Quartetto Indaco.
