“Showing a deeper understanding of harmony,”
(Boston Musical Intelligencer) Minnesota-born, Boston-Based, J. A. J. Sedarski’s (b.2000) music is a dynamic mixture of large, dramatic gestures and intimate moments. He writes music inspired by his heritage, real life events, and the natural world.
Sedarski started his composition journey at 14 at his family piano that was sitting collecting dust in the corner. At 19 years old, he received his first commission to write for the Boston-based Juventas New Music Ensemble and has composed for the ensemble every year since. Attending school at Boston University, his music has been performed by the MIVOS Quartet, Boston University Symphony Orchestra, Boston University Chamber Orchestra, and Sound Icon chamber ensemble.
His first year at university, he won the 2020 Composition Competition with Performance with Orchestra from the School of Music at Boston University for his work Variants for Orchestra.
Besides music, his interests include spending time with his family and friends, being active, gardening, and the films of Danny Kaye.
