It is the intention of the followers of the music of Alec Wilder (1907-1980) to bring greater awareness and to preserve the life’s work of this unique and fascinating American composer. As Wilder was often misunderstood, ignored, and labeled a maverick, his music does not easily fit into any one category. Yet, he is truly an American original deserving wider recognition. For many reasons, including a self-professed lack of confidence, Wilder resisted notoriety and acclaim preferring simply to live life his way and to compose primarily for friends.
