Biography

Jack Lenz is a Canadian Bahá’í composer. He has written, performed, and produced music for film, television, and theatre, along with working on non-soundtrack album ventures. He is also the founder of Live Unity Enterprises, an organization devoted to the production of music for the Bahá’í community, and dramatic and musical resources to help promote its teachings. For example, Lenz wrote the music for the Expectation opening music for the second Bahá’í World Congress in 1992 with an audience of tens of thousands of Bahá’ís from around the world.

Jack Lenz was born in Eston, Saskatchewan. His mother was also raised in Saskatchewan, and his father came to Canada from Hungary during the Depression. Still in his youth Lenz took piano lessons from Garth Beckett and later studied composition at the University of Saskatchewan.Lenz became a professional musician when he played keyboards and flute for the soft-rock bands Seals and Crofts and Loggins and Messina touring around the world, performing before large audiences, and recording.Lenz’ involvement in children’s issues stems partly from having seven children of his own, as well as being an arena which avoids “the conflict between what I believe about music and its sacred nature and dealing with what a lot of programing deals with, which sometimes could be the worst aspects of human nature.” Lenz joined the Bahá’í Faith in 1969.

Lenz has done music production work for over 100 programs for various categories of mass media including television series and information/news programming
