James Hartway (b01/01/1944)

Born in Detroit, Michigan in 1944, James Hartway began a lifelong study of music with piano lessons at the age of seven. In middle school and throughout high school he pursued this avocation with diligence by forming his own jazz quartet, learning to play percussion, and amassing a substantial collection of both classical and jazz recordings. During college the “for fun” avocation turned into a serious vocation. Hartway earned Bachelor of Arts and Master of Music degrees from Wayne State University, and a Ph.D. in music from Michigan State University. His principal composition teachers have been H. Owen Reed and Ruth Shaw Wylie.

As a professional composer James Hartway has received sixty commissions from major musical organizations and educational institutions, and has composed 89 works. He has been asked to create pieces for the Detroit Symphony Orchestra, the American Artist Series, the Meadow Brook Music Festival, the American Guild of Organists, the Michigan Opera Theater, the Catholic Archdiocese of Detroit for the Papal visit of John Paul II to the United States, the Scarab Club, Printemps Musicale des Alizés of Morocco, the Detroit Chamber Winds and Strings, the Verdher Trio, the Woodland Trio, and various other chamber music groups and soloists, and he has served as composer-in-residence for the Chamber Music Conference and Composers Forum of the East in Bennington, Vermont.
