Biography

Sylvester Wager was born in 1963, in Jacksonville, Florida. He educated himself at the piano, using rudiments he picked up from music band programs in middle and high school. He is indebted to his sister Kristin’s first boyfriend for telling him what the pitches of bass clef were: and he likes to cite Webster’s Dictionary as his source for learning how to string his Hungarian violin (a gift from his grandmother).

In 1981, Sylvester decided to study music composition, against all odds and better judgment. He received instruction and encouragement from various professors from these schools: Jacksonville University; Florida Junior College; University of Florida; Florida State University.

By 1985, Sylvester felt the need to be in the center of the musical world, New York City. And excepting a few tries at living in San Francisco, and some world travel, he has lived in the New York Metropolitan Area ever since. He resides in the Times Square Hotel, and spends time in Kew Gardens, Queens.

He became a church organist, when his partner at the time, Ron Lawson needed a musician for the Metro New York Adventist Forum, which met for many years at St. Paul’s Chapel, Columbia University. The organ was a G. Donald Harrison rebuild of an Aeolian Skinner, which inspired Sylvester to write works for organ.
