A Catholic Composer to Watch…
Eric Genuis is a composer, performer, and conductor on a mission to save the culture from the destructive effects of bad music. Like the philosophers of ancient Greece, Genuis believes music shapes our character, and worries that “young people are damaged by popular music before they become adults.” His solution is to make good music and to get people into concert halls to hear him perform it live.
Genuis, now 41, was raised in Toronto, but his parents are from Malta, having immigrated to Canada after World War II. He studied music, along with physics and math, at the Royal Conservatory of Music, University of Toronto, where in addition to composing and music history, he paid particular attention to the effect of music on modern culture.
