Frank E Warren
Frank E. Warren is the founder and president of Frank E. Warren Music Service and Earnestly Music. He is also a well-respected, award-winning composer of chamber and choral music, educator, and adjudicator. While retired as an educator, he is active with everything else.
A member of ASCAP, he publishes chamber and educational music. His publishing company represents both ASCAP & BMI composers, with an international roster. Frank has served as an adjudicator for composition competitions, including the Illinois Arts Council. His works have been performed on six continents by Marni Nixon, Krista River, Emily Howard, Beth Levin, Thomas Piercy, Fumito Nunoya, Jun Toguchi, Chicago Chamber Orchestra, Rome Festival Orchestra, and the Quartet of the Baltic Philharmonic.
A versatile composer and arranger, Frank’s passion is rooted in early 20th century music. His influences range from Monteverdi to John Coltrane, Ralph Vaughn Williams and Erik Satie. Of course Bach and Beethoven are very high on his list, and yet the people he respects most are those teachers who helped him find his own voice. John Bavicchi, Jeronimas Kacinskas, Tom McGah, Bill Maloof, Hugo Norden and Alma Espinosa were each essential to his education.
This versatility is evident in his choral, chamber, orchestral, jazz, and vocal works - as well as in his collaborations with poets, visual artists, and with modern dance companies throughout the United States and abroad. Frank is open to invitations and collaborations to work on new commissions. Please reach out to him using the contact form on his website.
