A saxophonist since the age of ten, Brien Henderson spent his youth playing in concert bands and jazz bands. He gave up music entirely for a number of years after high school, instead pursuing a literary path, but returned to music performance and formal education at community college, ultimately leading to earning his Bachelor’s and Master’s degrees in music composition at San Francisco State University, where he studied with Richard Festinger, Christopher Wendell Jones, and Benjamin Sabey. He is presently in the midst of completing a PhD in composition at the University at Buffalo, studying principally with David Felder. His music has been performed by Court-Circuit, Ensemble Dal Niente, the Hausmann String Quartet, Ensemble Linea, Ensemble Signal, and Sotto Voce Vocal Collective.
