TERRY VOSBEIN was born into a musical family in the musical city of New Orleans. He spent his first decades immersed in the world of jazz composition and performance, playing and writing and learning.

Somewhere along the way he got a few degrees, wrote some symphonies and found himself in Lexington, Virginia, teaching at Washington and Lee University.

In recent years he has turned back to his jazz roots.

His suite for jazz nonet, Come And Get It, has received performances in the US, France and Canada.

In 2008 he spent seven months living in Paris and Copenhagen creating music for twenty-piece big band. Some of these new compositions can be found on the CD Progressive Jazz 2009, featuring the Knoxville Jazz Orchestra (Max Frank Music).

The critically acclaimed performance of Vosbein’s arrangements of the music from Sweeney Todd is now available on Fleet Street, once again featuring the fabulous Knoxville Jazz Orchestra.

Stradivarius Christmas, a collection of favorite holiday songs skillfully arranged by Vosbein for violin and piano, and featuring Jasper Wood and David Riley, was released in 2012.
