Elliot Del Borgo (10/27/1938 – 5/30/2013)

With sad regrets, we mourn the passing of Elliot Del Borgo, a great composer/arranger of band and orchestra sheet music. An award-winning member of ASCAP, he was a frequent consultant, clinician, lecturer, and adjudicator in the United States and abroad. Born in Port Chester, NY, Elliot Del Borgo earned 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. Elliot has published over 600 compositions with various publishers and in 1980 wrote the music for the Olympics in Lake Placid.  He described his work as “music you will want to play again and again … and music that will enable your ensemble to improve.”  We will all miss his contribution to music education.
