ABOUT THE COMPOSER
Robert Myers is an aspiring composer seeking to reveal beauty, truth, and goodness in music. After 30+ years in the business world Mr. Myers has plunged fully into composition and music ministry, thereby testing the admonition that “no one puts new wine in old wine skins” and relying on the promise that “what is impossible with man is possible with God.” He holds a Master of Music degree from Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary (2017) with a concentration in composition, studying under R. Christopher Teichler, Gary Joe Hardin, and Don Wyrtzen.
His compositions aim to bring the beauty of holiness into our churches and point to the eternal power and divine nature of Almighty God in our concert halls. He writes for choral and instrumental ensembles with original works, arrangements of extant hymns, new settings of old texts, and an occasional foray into absolute music of an impressionist/neo-romantic bent.
Mr. Myers was the winner of the 2015 Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary student composer contest. For the contest award his work, “Divinum Mysterium” was performed by the Fort Worth Symphony Orchestra. He was selected to attend the 2017 John Ness Beck Composers Workshop in Greenville, SC to study with Craig Courtney, Dan Forrest, and Howard Helvey. His carol arrangement, “Lo, a Rose” was featured for the May, 2019 Christian Fellowship of Art Music Composers listening page.
Over the last twenty years Mr. Myers has performed in and assisted with choral and music ministries in churches across the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex and performed with the SWBTS Master Chorale at Bass Hall. He currently volunteers in the Worship & Creative Arts ministry at First Baptist Church, Keller, TX providing leadership in the Uplifted vocal ensemble and the FBC Keller Orchestra.
