Daniel McCarthy


"McCarthy's music," writes David Patrick Stearns of U.S.A. Today, "Is intriguing, inviting, shimmering...with the vigor of pop music and the spontaneity of jazz."  The Music Connoisseur proclaims him as "one of the hot young composers on the contemporary music scene. . . contemporary in the best sense of the word."  Philip George of 20th Century Music Magazine writes, "(McCarthy's music is) sassy and foreboding -- refreshing and kicky.  One has the sense that we're dealing with various manifestations of one large work.  It's called style."

Daniel McCarthy's music has won him international acclaim.  His music is recorded and performed by such ensembles as the London Metropolitan Symphony, the Slovak Radio Symphony Orchestra, The Amarillo Symphony Orchestra, The Nashville Symphony Orchestra, Rhythm & Brass, American marimba soloist Michael Burritt, The Arizona Quartet, The Cleveland and Dallas Jazz Orchestras, and many individual artists throughout the United States and Europe.  His many awards and grants include composition fellowships from the National Endowment for the Arts, Indiana Arts Commission, The Ohio Arts Council, The Indiana State University Research/Creativity Award, The Mary Anderson Center for the Arts fellowship, Arts Midwest Meet-The-Composer, four Indiana State University Arts Endowment Grants and seven composition prizes.

Daniel McCarthy is Coordinator of the Music Theory, Composition, History and Literature Division at Indiana State University where he co-chairs the Contemporary Music Festival and is Director of the Midwest Composers' Forum.  He is also Visiting Associate Professor of Composition at DePauw University and Instructor of Composition, Computer Music, and Theory at the Interlochen Arts Camp.
