  • About Cathy Neff

    Cathy Neff is a composer of many genres from classical to jazz, pop to country, religious to musical theatre.

Composing, arranging, teaching, producing, conducting, musical directing – she loves them all.

    Cathy’s forte is musical adaptation of classic literature. She has composed scores for stage adaptations of the works of Shakespeare, Greek classics, Roald Dahl, E.B. White, Rudyard Kipling, and many more. She has an innate ability to connect with characters and write from their perspective, giving a unique insight for performer and listener alike.

    Her works for instrumental and vocal ensembles have been performed nationally and internationally including “Spirit of Freedom” for concert band, “The Ministry” oratorio for choir, “Beat” for percussion ensemble, and her vocal setting of The Pledge of Allegiance called “America!”
