> Dear Friends and Colleagues,
> I write both to communicate sad news about the passing of our esteemed and revered colleague, composer,
James Tenney, and to begin an invocation to celebrate the boundlessly creative spirit and uniquely productive life
of a great musical artist. Jim died peacefully late Thursday night, August 24th, 2006 after a difficult battle with cancer.
His tenacity in life and his determined, affirming energy never wavered. His keenly focused composing and theoretical
work continued nearly to his last moments. During recent years at CalArts, Jim taught the works of composers he
referred to as American musical mavericks. Clearly he was also one of the greats among them. History will remember
him as a vitally significant American artist. Jim was a faculty member in the School of Music in the early 1970s when
CalArts was finding footing as a somewhat maverick arts institution, and he returned later in the 1990s to assume
the Roy E. Disney Family Chair in Musical Composition. In the interim, he taught at the University of California at
Santa Cruz and York University, in Toronto. Jim’s mere presence on campus was always inspiring, touching countless
lives over the years. A master teacher, treasured by so many, he was also a close personal friend and often collaborator
over at least three decades. He will be greatly missed, and we will continue to celebrate the continuity, the power,
and the encouraging, constructive quality of his influence, along with his devotion to the forward evolution of music
as an essential force in the life of all human kind.
> A brief memorial service will be held in Roy O. Disney Recital Hall at CalArts on Monday, August 28th, 2006 at 11:00 AM.
A concert celebrating Tenney’s life and work will be planned for later in the fall.
> A brief biography of Tenney can be found at:
> David Rosenboom, Composer/Performer
> Dean, School of Music
> California Institute of the Arts
