EDWARD LEIN
composer Early in his career, Florida native Edward Lein (b. 1955 in Fort Pierce) appeared as tenor soloist in recitals, oratorios and dramatic works throughout his home state, and the majority of his early compositions draw on his experience as a vocalist. In 2006, Ed was a finalist in the Jacksonville Symphony Orchestra's Fresh Ink composition contest, and following performances of orchestral pieces by the Symphony his instrumental catalog has grown largely due to requests from Symphony players for new pieces.
Now retired, Ed was Music Librarian for the City of Jacksonville, Florida, where he founded and produced the popular Music @ Main concerts (2006-2016). He was a regular contributor to the Jacksonville Symphony's ENCORE magazine from 2014-2016, and still gets frequent requests for his English translations of French, German, Spanish, Italian and Russian song texts from individuals and orchestras throughout North America and Great Britain, including from such prestigious organizations as Orchestre symphonique de Montréal, and Carnegie Hall's The Song Continues.
