John Wineglass (Emmy® Award-Winning Composer) has performed on five continents, before every U.S. president since Ronald Reagan and with several Oscar® and Grammy® Award Winning artists, including Aretha Franklin, Whitney Houston and Jamie Foxx to name a few. With commissions from the likes of the Cabrillo Festival of Contemporary Music w/Maestra Marin Alsop to the Kennedy Center Concert Hall, The Washington Post describes his concert-hall work as having ‘iridescent colors in the world premiere of a beautifully crafted suite’ while Marvin Hamlisch congratulates the occasion by commenting ‘… with a name like Wineglass, it had to be good.'
John received his Bachelor of Music degree in Music Composition with a minor in Viola Performance at The American University and later received his master’s degree in Music Composition: Film Scoring for Motion Pictures, Television and Multi-Media at New York University, studying with Justin Dello-Joio of the Juilliard School.
As a recipient of three (two consecutive) Daytime Emmy® Awards for Outstanding Achievement in Music Direction and Composition for a Drama Series, and three ASCAP Film and Television Music Awards, Mr. Wineglass holds seven EMMY® nominations.
In 2014, John arranged all of the string arrangements and performed w/the electric-acoustic violin on the GRAMMY©-nominated gospel album and DVD Withholding Nothing (LIVE) by William McDowell. He also finished string arrangements on MOTOWN’s latest Christmas album in 25 years which was nominated for a 2015 DOVE© Award featuring award-wining artists like Indie Arie, Neyo, Babyface, Toni Braxton, The Temptations, Smokie Robinson and Gregory Porter.
