BIO

Kevin Leysath II is a music composer and saxophonist born in 2001 in Rochester, NY where he has been surrounded by music his whole life. Kevin currently studies Music Composition at Nazareth College School of music. After academia he plans to pursue a career in Film scoring. He currently collaborates with Filmmakers from the Rochester Institute of technology to score their films. His melodic style reflects his love for film music and catchy heartfelt themes whether it is sorrowful, or joyful.

Kevin has composed music ranging from sonata’s to saxophone quartet/ensemble music to electronic and hip-hop instrumental beats. He loves writing for strings, especially the cello because of how beautifully the instrument sounds and how it can in some cases resemble a voice. His works have been performed and recorded by groups such as Nazareth College’s Saxophone Society, Mcduffie Center for Strings student quartet and the mdi ensemble. As a winner of the MLK creative expression award, Kevin also enjoys writing programmatic music and pieces that tributes to people of African descent that have made a great impact on the world such as Maya Angelou and Samuel Coleridge-Taylor. His composition training throughout the years has been led by composers such as Octavio Vazquez, Alison Plante, Clint Bajakan and Poalo Tortiglione.  Kevin is also a member of the Millennium Composers Initiative (MCI).
