Nathan Kendrick (born 1993) is an American composer, musician, musicologist and conductor. He lives in a small rural town of Pennsylvania, but still manages to immerse himself in the arts. Kendrick is an avid performer and enjoys a busy schedule of both vocal and instrumental related events. His latest ambitions include bettering his compositions and networking out to other musicians and composers; both of which he believes Young Composers will help him achieve.


Completed Works

  • Opus 1: Double Reed Quartet (2007)- Written for three oboes and a bassoon, this piece was composed after Kendrick attended his first Octoboefest, a double reed festival at Mansfield University. He considers it his first true composition.
  • Opus 2: Latin Chorals (2008- )
    • Number 1: Pater Noster (2008)- Written for A cappella SATB choir, this is the first work in what Kendrick believes will be a large opus of about twelve works based on Latin prayers.
