"Since poetry is written for the ear as well as the eye, and since throughout most of human history poetry and song were considered a single genre, I’m very happy for the chance to collaborate with such a talented composer, Andrew Steffen, and for the opportunity to hear these words lifted from the page by such gifted musicians, The Master Singers."

— Max Garland, Wisconsin Poet Laureate

"I am honored to be serving as The Master Singer's first Composer-in-Residence for the 2012-2013 Concert Season. The high standard of musical quality the ensemble and conductor put forth in their performances is one to excite any composer to follow. As an assistant accompanist for The Master Singers over the past couple of years, I am thrilled to take a new role in the ensemble as a composer and vocalist."

-- Andrew Steffen, Composer-in-Residence 2012-2013
