Biographical note

Joseph Frederick Wagner was born on January 9, 1900, in Springfield, Massachusetts. He was a composer, conductor, and author. He started piano lessons at the age of 8. Wagner graduated from Technical High School in Providence, Rhode Island, in 1918, then served in the United States Army from 1918 to 1919. After leaving the army, he studied piano full-time with Felix Fox and studied organ with Louis Whilemann. He attended the New England Conservatory of Music, graduating in 1923 and receiving the Encidott Prize in composition. In 1924, he was appointed Assistant Director of Music in Boston Public Schools, then founded the Boston Civic Symphony in 1925. He served as the conductor for the Boston Civic Symphony for eighteen years.
Beginning in 1929, Wagner held a teaching position at Boston University (as an instructor for orchestration and band scoring) and simultaneously studied to earn his Mus.B. degree in composition, which he received in 1932. In the 1930s and 1940s, Wagner traveled making guest conducting appearances and studying. He studied in Paris from 1934 to 1935, under Nadia Boulanger and Alfredo Casella for composition, and under Pierre Monteux and Felix Weingartner for conducting. He also wrote ballets while abroad, including the Dance Divertissement and Hudson River Legend. In 1945, Wagner was made Special Instructor at Hunter College, and in 1946 became an assistant professor at Brooklyn College in New York.
Wagner served as the resident conductor of the Duluth Symphony from 1947 to 1950, and then spent approximately a decade writing and conducting around the world. From 1950 to 1954, he lived in Costa Rica serving as the Musical Director of the Oquesta Sinfonica Nacional de Costa Rica -- he was recognized with an honorary doctorate degree in 1953 because he was the first American to be a permanent conductor of a Latin American orchestra. Wagner conducted at appearances in Cuba, Canada, Chile, Finland, Panama, Sweden, and other countries. He was also the first native-born American to conduct as a guest director of the Orquesta Filharmonica De Habana in 1949, presenting the first American program performed in the Cuban capital.
Wagner published two music books, Orchestration: A Practical Handbook and Band Scoring, as well as two accompanying workbooks. He moved to California in 1959 after receiving a grant from the Huntington Hartford Foundation, and was appointed head of the Theory Department of the Los Angeles Conservatory of Music in 1960. In 1963, he was appointed Composer-in-Residence of Pepperdine University, and stayed there for a decade. Wagner died in Los Angeles, California on October 12, 1974.
