View Full Size

Dennis W. Rosenbaum began his musical training with flute lessons at age nine. He continued to pursue his interest in music throughout high school. He attended Oberlin College, graduating in 1984 with a BA in Mathematics and Music. His musical studies at Oberlin included music theory, music history, oboe, and voice. He has continued his vocal training since college, working part time as a church musician, and occasionally as an oratorio soloist.

Dennis has been composing since college, mostly vocal pieces. Since joining the Rochester Gay Men's Chorus in 1986, he has arranged pieces for men's voices, and penned compositions for men's voices, in addition to the pieces for mixed and women's voices which he has written. His involvement in a GALA Chorus has caused him to search out texts which deal with the issues found in gay and lesbian lives, as well as spiritual texts of an inclusive nature.

To date, Dennis has had eighteen pieces published by Yelton Rhodes Music, Inc. These works include original pieces for mixed and men's voices, and arrangements of three Bruckner motets and the Mozart Requiem for men's voices. His works have been performed by the Rochester Gay Men's Chorus, the Atlanta Gay Men's Chorus, the San Diego Men's Chorus, and the Hampton Roads Men's Chorus. He is also currently finishing a commission for the Capital Pride Singers, and will be completing a commission for the San Francisco Gay Men's Chorus in 2001.

Dennis lost his partner, Stanley A. Malinowski, on December 31, 1996 due to a failed liver transplant. This loss not only caused him to reconnect with the Rochester Gay Men's Chorus and GALA, but also inspired him to resume his writing. He resides in Rochester, NY with his dog and two cats.
