Musician and composer Glenna Burmer finds her inspiration in different ways. From the devastating earthquake and tsunami that hit Japan in 2011, which inspired Symphonic Stories, to the mysteries of the cosmos, which was the basis of Origins: Life and the Universe, Burmer concerts feature innovative collaborations between composers and musicians around a central theme, resulting in world-premiere performances.

As president of Burmer Music LLC, Burmer enjoys collaborating with her fellow composers and working outside her comfort zone to create concerts and CDs spotlighting original, artistic and beautiful orchestral music. “There are so few opportunities for composers to hear their own music performed live since many compose for film, video or the gaming industry,” Burmer said. “Through my concerts, my goal is to combine the finest composers with the most talented musicians and create a musical treasure for the audience as well as the musicians to enjoy.”
