SSG Andrew Kosinski is proud to serve as staff arranger for The U.S. Army Band "Pershing's Own." His works have been described as "a stunning exercise in visual theater" (Laurie Shulman) and have been praised for their "virtuosic, turbid musical language" (Theater Jones), and "efficient and effective use of time" (William Bolcom). Prior to joining the Army, he received commissions, performances, and recordings from artists across Europe, Asia, and the United States such as Voices of Change, Patagonia Winds, Monmouth Symphony Orchestra, violin soloist Tim Fain, and Philadelphia Orchestra piccoloist Erica Peel. Kosinski's music has been broadcast on 103.3 WPRB Princeton "Classical Discoveries." Additionally, Kosinski was a finalist in the 2021 ASCAP Morton Gould Young Composer Awards, and winner of the 2019 Voices of Change Composition Competition. Born and raised at the Jersey Shore, Kosinski earned a BM in Performance and Composition from Rutgers University and an MM in Composition and Music Theory Pedagogy from the Peabody Conservatory of Johns Hopkins University. His principal mentors include Kevin Puts, Robert Aldridge, Scott Ordway, and Amanda Harberg.
