Biography
Joel Puckett is one of the most performed composers in America. Hailed as "visionary" (Washington Post) and "an astonishingly original voice" (Philadelphia Inquirer), his music has been performed by the leading artists of our day and is consistently recognized by organizations such as the American Composers Forum, BMI, Chorus America, National Public Radio, and the American Bandmasters Association.

Puckett's music attracts diverse performers and listeners through its emotional energy and commitment. Melding tradition with innovation, his distinctive style grows from his power to create transcendent experiences using charismatic musical language.

The Fix, a grand opera commissioned by Minnesota Opera, will premiere in the March 2019, with a libretto by Academy Award and Tony Award winner, Eric Simonson. The work depicts the rise and fall of the 1919 Chicago White Sox. It is a tragedy ripe with power, romance and redemption, set against the backdrop of America’s favorite pastime.

Puckett's earlier commissions have been premiered and performed worldwide, to exuberant critical acclaim. His flute concerto, The Shadow of Sirius, premiered in 2010 and has received more than 200 performances and been recorded multiple times, including 2015's Naxos Surround Sound disc, "Shadow of Sirius," which received a 2016 Grammy Nomination.
