ARTHUR FRACKENPOHL  

ARTHUR FRACKENPOHL was born in New Jersey in 1924. He held degrees from the Eastman School of Music (BA, MA) and McGill University (DM). He also studied composition at Tanglewood in 1948 with Darius Milhaud and with Nadia Boulanger at Fontainebleau in 1950, where he was awarded the First Prize in Composition.

In 1949 Dr. Frackenpohl joined the faculty of the Crane School of Music at the State University of New York at Potsdam. From 1961 until his retirement, he served there as Professor of Music and Coordinator of Keyboard courses, receiving the SUNY Chancellorís Award for Excellence in Teaching in 1982.

He was been awarded numerous grants and fellowships for composition, including one from the Ford Foundation in 1959-60 to serve as composer-in-residence for the Hempstead (NY) Public Schools.

Frackenpohl had over 250 instrumental and choral compositions and arrangements published, many recordings, and the book, "Harmonization at the Piano" for keyboard harmony text.
