Mark Rheaume (b.1990) offers an array of compositions, poetics, and research that integrate ideas both foreign and intimate. His works, ranging from symphonies to haiku, seek the purity of efficient design and the clarity of efficient delivery.
Featured on programs by the Illinois Symphony Orchestra, the American Trombone Quartet, Qu4tre a 4, the UIS Chamber Orchestra, the Illinois College Wind Ensemble, the 2017 and 2018 International Trombone Festivals, and the Eastern Illinois New Music Ensemble, Mark balances a career of composing, conducting, teaching, and writing.
He holds a Master of Arts in Music Composition and a Bachelor of Music in Trombone Performance from Eastern Illinois University. In August 2018 Mark will begin doctoral studies at the University of Iowa.
