Florida native Edward Lein (b. 1955) holds Master's degrees in Music Theory and Library Science from Florida State University. As a tenor soloist he appeared in recitals, oratorios and dramatic works throughout his home state, and drawing on his performance experience the majority of his early compositions are vocal works. Following performances of pieces by the Jacksonville Symphony, including 'Meditation' for cello, oboe and orchestra (premiered June 2006) and 'In the Bleak Midwinter' (premiered December 2007), his instrumental catalog has grown largely due to requests from Symphony players for new pieces.

By day, Ed is Music Librarian for the City of Jacksonville and is the driving force behind the monthly Intermezzo Sunday Concerts series at Jacksonville's Main Library. The Library concerts feature prominent musicians from the greater Jacksonville area as well as national and international guest artists, and they have been the best-attended series of adult programs in the history of Jacksonville Public Library.
