Curtis Bryant, Freelance Composer, has been recognized by Marquis Who’s Who Top Educators for dedication, achievements, and leadership in music education.
Since 1982, Mr. Bryant has been a freelance composer. Before taking that path, he spent many years as an instructor for institutions such as Clayton State University in Morrow, Georgia, from 2000 to 2001, Tri-Cities High School in East Point, Georgia, from 2000 to 2002 and the School of Music at Georgia State University in Atlanta from 2004 to 2014. His first professional role was as a lecturer at Perimeter College at Georgia State University in Clarkston from 1998 to 2001.
Mr. Bryant always knew he would be a composer. He remembers his father’s friend was a lawyer and amateur composer. Thinking about this, he decided he would not dedicate time to any career but music. He began his academic pursuits at Eckerd College in St. Petersburg, Florida, in 1971 where he received a Bachelor of Arts. He continued his studies at Georgia State University where he earned a Master of Music Theory.
Some of Mr. Bryant’s most notable works composed include the opera “Zabette” in 1999 and “The Secret Agent” in 2013. He also composed the symphonies “Dinosaurs: A Primeval Symphony” which was commissioned by the Savannah Symphony Orchestra, now the Savannah Philharmonic Orchestra and Chorus, in 1991, “Prelude & Fugue” for orchestra for the Macon Symphony Orchestra in 1985 and “Divertimento” for strings in 2004. He also composed the chorus, band and orchestra music for the “Requiem for September Eleven” for the Ridgewood Middle School in 2001.
With all of these impressive compositions, Mr. Bryant is most proud of having his two operas receive full production. One was produced in collaboration with Georgia State University and other universities including Morehouse College and Spelman College in Atlanta, Georgia. The American Prize in Composition awarded him the second place award for Opera, Film, and Musical Theater in 2016 for his opera “Zabette.”
