Music is the most profound
expression of shared human experience. At times of
joy, at times of great sadness, when we seek solace
or refuge, when we seek to share happiness and love,
we can do this through music.
Betsy Foster is a composer of insightful melodic
works that tie rich harmony to a passionate expression
of a human soul. Betsy studied music from an early
age, culminating in her graduation from Longwood College
in Virginia with a degree in Piano Performance. Sidetracked
for many years in a legal career, Betsy began a renewed
love affair with musical composition following a debilitating
Passion is the force behind her music, evident in
the power of the emotion experienced through her compositions.
Betsy is fortunate in a unique skill that allows her
to compose in response to her own feelings and to
maintain relevance for the listener, so that they
too can feel the impact of her expression.
Some have described Betsy's music as
"New Age" comparing it with writer/performers
such as Jim Brickman. To classify Betsy's compositions
as merely New Age would understate their true nature,
which, while embracing the melodic fluidity best prized
in New Age music, also embody a much more stirring
aspect of rich harmony that draws that oh so elusive
emotional response from the audience.
Betsy Foster's compositions have found a home in
the hearts of many, and lovers of classical and contemporary
artists alike are able to share an appreciation of
her art. Those searching for a song to celebrate love,
or to commemorate love, speak eloquently of the grace
and fulfillment given to them by sharing Betsy's music.
From the darkness of tragedy, Betsy Foster's compositions
envelop the audience, and like an oyster, the music
itself becomes a pearl that brings relief to pain,
and adds luster to joy.
