Elliot Del Borgo

(1922 - 2013)

Born in Port Chester, New York, Elliot Del Borgo completed a B.S. degree from the State University of New York, an Ed.M. degree from Temple University, and an M.M. degree from the Philadelphia Conservatory of Music, where he studied theory and composition with Vincent Persichetti and trumpet with Gilbert Johnson. In 1973, he was granted the doctoral equivalency by SUNY, and was later elected to membership in the American Bandmasters Association in 1993.

Mr. Del Borgo taught instrumental music in the Philadelphia public schools and was Professor of Music at the Crane School of Music, where he held teaching and administrative positions from 1966 to 1995. An award-winning member of ASCAP, he was a frequent consultant, clinician, lecturer, and adjudicator in the United States and abroad.

In addition to his music for the 1980 Olympics in Lake Placid, he published nearly 500 compositions for a variety of media. His music reflects the aesthetics of twentieth-century musical ideals through its eclectic nature and vigorous harmonic and rhythmic styles.
