View Full Size

Scott Henderson (Born 1956 in New Jersey) began piano lessons at age 8 and composing at 9. He received his early musical training at the Manhattan School of Music, studying composition with Ludmila Ulehla, and received his bachelor's degree in composition at Indiana University, studying with Bernhard Heiden. At IU he composed the scores for two campus shows: "On With the Show" and "Bicentennial!" and two ballets. Between 1985 and 1992, Scott sang with the Gay Men's Chorus of Los Angeles and served as resident composer. In honor of Jon Bailey's tenure as music director, GMCLA recently premiered a stunning new work by Scott, "Rainbows are Not Enough."

Henderson's work in musical theater includes writing the score for "Hail, Pomona" at Pomona College, musical directing the recent west-coast premier of "Mamaleh," and accompanying for cabaret performers ranging from Karen Morrow to Bruce Hubbard to Marilyn Horne to Joan Rivers. In his non-musical life, Scott has served as Director of Development for USC and the Childrens Hospital Los Angeles Foundation, and as Executive Director of the Los Angeles classical radio station, KUSC. Recently, he cut back his commitments at KUSC to pursue a more active life as a composer.

In 2000, he collaborated with lyricist William MacDuff on three new works: "The Gift You Gave," "If Not at Christmas," and "Covenant", and with Linda Marcus on the Hanukkah piece, "Flame of Faith." (see his list of works). Yelton Rhodes will also bring out several new works this summer.

Scott lives in Glendale, California with his partner Martin Bray.
