The Charleston Symphony Orchestra, in South Carolina, United States, has this week announced the appointment of composer Edward Hart as its new Composer-in-Residence – for the 2019-2020 season.

A native of Charleston and graduate of the University of South Carolina, where he studied with Gordon Goodwin, Edward currently serves a Professorship at the College of Charleston School of Music.

“Having your work performed by other orchestras, in other place, is certainly gratifying … but having your friends play your music is special … ” the 54-year-old has this week said.

“I am fortunate in that my homeland has been unceasingly inspirational,” he has said.

The Charleston Symphony will feature Edward’s new works A Charleston Concerto and Under an Indigo Sky in their season premiere in late September.
