Dave Hollinden


Dave Hollinden (b. 14 October 1958, Indiana) is an American composer.

Mr. Hollinden's bachelor's degree in composition is from Indiana University, where he studied with Harvey Sollberger and Juan Orrego-Salas. He received his master's degree in composition from the University of Michigan, where he studied with Fred Lerdahl, William Albright and Leslie Bassett.

Mr. Hollinden has composed extensively for percussion, and his music is widely performed in the U.S. and overseas. He has a unique voice that speaks not only of his training in composition but also of his background in rock music and his affinity for rhythm and number.

He has received commissions from the Eclectic Trio and Crescent Duo (chamber quartet), Sole Nero - Tony DiSanza and Jessica Johnson (duets for piano and percussion), Michael Burritt (marimba solo), Nick Petrella (multi-percussion solo), Nachiko Maekana (multi-percussion solo), Central Washington University (percussion octet), Midlothian High School (wind ensemble), and Victoria Memorial High School (percussion octet).

Mr. Hollinden has been the recipient of grants from Artist Trust, the Seattle Arts Commission, the National Foundation for Advancement in the Arts, and the Artist Support Program of Jack Straw Productions.
