An Interview with Jeff Enns

Iain Gillis


Jeff Enns has won a number of composition competitions and had his music performed across North America, as well Ireland, the U.K and Japan, and was recently the composer-in-residence for the Canadian Chamber Choir. He has been widely commissioned, by groups that include Victoriabased Vox Humana. It was that choir’s director, Brian Wismath, who first introduced me to Jeff and his music. Jeff teaches violin at the Beckett School in Kitchener, and is music director of St. James Lutheran church in Elmira, ON. In his typically generous way, he agreed to speak to me on the phone from his home in Elmira, where he lives with his family and is a stay-at-home father of 2, in late October 2011.
