Hi!  I'm a composer living in Minneapolis.  I like to find inspiration in nature, science, and art.  Maiorana is pronounced "MY-uh-RAH-nuh."  For more details, here's a resume and a podcast interview. 

Here's a short current bio to use for programs:

Michael Maiorana is a composer living in Minneapolis. After graduating from Grinnell College in rural Iowa, he studied composition, harmony, and counterpoint at the European American Musical Alliance in Paris. Michael was recently awarded a 2020 ACF Create grant from the American Composers Forum to write a multi-movement choral work setting a speech about social welfare by Harry Hopkins. You can reach Michael any time at his contact page at  www.maioranamusic.com.
