Andrew Earle Simpson, composer, pianist, and organist, is ordinary professor and head of the division of Theory and Composition at the Benjamin T. Rome School of Music of The Catholic University of America in Washington, D.C. A composer of opera, silent film, orchestral, chamber, choral, dance, and vocal music, his musical works make multi-faceted, intimate connections with literature, visual art, and film, reflecting his own interest in linking music with the wider world, an approach which he calls “humanistic music.” He is Resident Film Accompanist at the National Gallery of Art and House Accompanist at the Library of Congress’ Mt. Pony Theater in Culpeper, Va. Andrew is also an alumnus of Indiana University.
