Born in Gaylord, Michigan in 1997, Cody Myre is a composer of large ensemble, chamber, and vocal music. His music focuses on evoking images from the world in the form of short narratives. Cody takes inspiration from countless styles of music, from abstract hip-hop to Appalachian folk music, to create humorous, often oxymoronic stories. His pieces have been performed at numerous festivals, sessions, and concerts around the world, including new music festivals in Washington, New York, and Italy.
Cody spends much of his time editing scores and making parts as editor for T.U.X. People’s Music Publishing. As a proud alumnus of the Gamma Theta chapter of Phi Mu Alpha Sinfonia Fraternity, Cody is committed to the advancement of music in America.
Cody completed his undergraduate studies in music composition at the University of North Texas, where he studied under composers Andrew May, Kirsten Broberg, Louise Fristensky, and Michael Smith. His goals are to continue to study the art of music engraving, librarianship, and publication during his postgraduate studies. He currently resides in Denton, Texas with his wife and two cats."
