Calvin Linderman is a young composer from Old Lyme, Connecticut. Currently living in Middletown, CT, Calvin is a student at the Hartt School of Music, studying under Dr. Robert Carl and Dr. David Macbride for his Master's in Music Composition. A graduate of the University of Delaware, where he studied with Dr. Jennifer Barker, Calvin's compositions draw heavily from improvisation, impressionism, jazz and mainstream styles. Music that is challenging to both the performer and the listener, while remaining accessible, has always been a goal for Calvin when composing new music.
