Athanasios Thomas Peter AronisAthanasios Thomas Peter Aronis (b. May 25, 1935) is a graduate of Indiana University and the University of Pennsylvania. His compositions include four vocal symphonies: 1) “Psalm Symphony” (Psalms 22, 23, 24) for four antiphonal choirs, 2) “Abandoned House” (Susan Fawcett) for Solo Soprano, 3) “The Trojan Women” (Euripides/Gilbert Murray) for Soprano, Mezzo-Soprano and Men’s Chorus, and 4) “Romeo and Juliet” (Shakespeare) for Soprano and Baritone.

He has had performances in New York, Philadelphia, Washington, and Bloomington. He lived in New York for forty years, working for twelve years as the primary copyist for G.
