Composer Bill Heigen is a bright young light, writing music that bypasses unnecessary complexity, speaking directly, and with a balance of passion and intelligence. And, on top of that, he is a delight to work with! Beyond his incredible talent as a composer, Bill is a beautiful tenor singer – not only exquisite tone, but high-level musicianship in every way, and a real find either as a soloist or as an ensemblist. Bill and I have worked together as commissioned composer-conductor; composer hiring conductor for a premiere; conductor hiring a tenor for an ensemble need. Multi-faceted professional interactions, all rewarding!
