Bo writes music so that musicians can communicate with one another. He enjoys playing the flute and piano and prefers to conduct or be invovled in the creation of his music. He also enjoys writing lyrics that directly relate to his own life experiences. He leads improv sessions, directs band, choir and orchestra, and writes scores for large ensembles. He seeks to get the most out of the musician, show their power and create meaning. He aims to cultivate their gifts and share them with the world in the most profound way possible—to be artists and creators.
Bo has enjoyed being educated in jazz, modal and classical theory at Berklee College of music and has also taught middle school music for four years. He is currently a Tufts Graduate composer and is leading his own ensemble with a collection of song cycles and an opera. Under all this is a hunger to be a strong person, an example of integrity—to work hard everyday and never quit. To help others and to share in the effort. Music brings people together and is an evolving force. It is a language in and of itself and leads us to communicate beyond our own imagination. Let us continue the journey and see what joy and strength it may produce every day!
