Meira Warshauer

Meira Warshauer’s works have been performed and recorded to critical acclaim throughout the United States and in Israel, Europe, South America, and Asia.  Her music reflects her personal spiritual journey and communicates directly to the heart and soul of the listener.  She has received numerous awards from ASCAP and Meet the Composer, as well as the American Music Center.  She is a Visiting Lecturer at Columbia College, Columbia, SC, where she teaches The Healing Art of Music, a cross-cultural, multidisciplinary approach to music as a source of healing.  Warshauer has devoted much of her creative output to Jewish themes and their universal message.  In 2002, Israeli national radio broadcast an hour-long program of her music. In 2006, the Slovak Radio Symphony Orchestra performed Ahavah  and Shacharit  in a concert broadcast on Slovak National Radio and webcast internationally.  Warshauer graduated from Harvard University (B.A. magna com laude), New England Conservatory of Music (M.M. with honors), and the University of South Carolina (D.M.A.), and studied composition with Mario Davidovsky, Jacob Druckman, William Thomas McKinley, and Gordon Goodwin.
