Jacob Minter is a composer and musical agitator originally from central Vermont. After completing a Bachelor of Music from Ithaca College, he was the composer, band leader and music director for the off-Broadway production Gaybraham Lincoln: The Musical, and has scored several nationally recognized short films (Confidence, The Art of Adjustment, Salty Corn). Currently Jacob has been serving residencies across Europe. With RaumArs in Finland, he and local students developed a bilingual musical (Sea Life/Merielämää) about climate change in the Baltic Sea, and on the Slovak/Hungarian border he and local artists created a thematic Slovak/Hungarian choral piece derived from historical and contemporary poetry. He plays a variety of instruments you have never heard of, is jealous of how much better singers kids these days are, and will continue to do musical theater until he drops.
