Composer Conversations: Joseph T. Spaniola and ESCAPADE
July 2, 2019
One look at Joseph T. Spaniola’s biography, and one can’t help but want to lean in and learn more. Joe describes himself as “a composer on a passionate quest to engage the hearts and minds of audiences and performers through the communicative powers of music,” and he lives up to that quest both in his words and actions. Having served in many roles throughout his artistic career, including as the Chief Composer/Arranger for The United States Air Force Academy Band, he has had the opportunity to engage listeners in countless settings. His latest album, Big Round Records’ ESCAPADE, features the Air Force Academy Band among other notable ensembles, and the entire album brings audiences in on a unique journey through the ups and downs of contemporary composition.
We recently took time to speak with Joe about the release of ESCAPADE, how he became a composer, his involvement with the Air Force Academy Band, and more.
