Garrett Hope

Lincoln, NE         

Garrett’s purpose is to use his God-given creativity & communication skills to entertain & enlighten people, draw people together for a common purpose, and to empower composers of all ages.

He was won several awards for his music, and holds a doctorate in composition, but what matters most to him is working with students and storytellers.

Besides composing and conducting, Garrett hosts The Portfolio Composer (a podcast on the business of writing music), is a public speaker, and travels widely to clinic & workshop with ensembles.
