Craig Naylor

The Illinois Wesleyan University School of Music is presenting the Midwest premiere of “our voices, for now, sustained,” composed by Craig Naylor. Naylor, dubbed a modern classical composer, wrote the composition based on the Pulitzer Prize-winning poetry of Claudia Emerson, an Arrington distinguished chair in poetry and professor of English at UMW. Naylor has also composed such famous pieces as the soundtrack for the mountain climbing scenes in the IMAX film “To the Limit” and “On the Head of a Pin.”
