Edward Eicker

Edward Eicker holds both an M.A. (2002) and a B.M. (1999) from Roosevelt University in Chicago. His principal teachers have included organists David Schrader and Samuel Soria, and composers Stacy Garrop, Patricia Morehead and Don Malone.

In 2000, he won first prize in the Virginia and Seymour LaRock Composition Contest for his a cappella choral work “Banishment of Adam and Eve from the Garden of Eden.” In 2003, Mr. Eicker conducted Roosevelt University’s New Music Ensemble in the premier performance of his chamber work “States of Mind: A Suite of Emotional Miniatures.” In that same year, his “Ave Maria” received a reading by the Chicago Chapter of the American Composers Forum. His collection of chorale preludes, “To the Point: Short Preludes for Organ,” is published by Augsburg Fortress and sold over 700 copies in its first six months in print.

Mr. Eicker was commissioned by Immaculate Conception Church in Chicago to write “Celebrate With Joyful Singing” in celebration of their 100th anniversary. He has also received commissions from Chicago’s CUBE Ensemble and World Library Publications.
