Henry Wolking is a composer, trombonist, conductor, teacher, and author currently based in Nevada. A Florida native, he began his teaching career as head of the jazz area at the University of Utah, a position which he held for almost forty years. He retired in 2011 and is a University Professor Emeritus of Music. Wolking completed his Bachelor Degree in music education from the University of Florida, and Master of Music in Composition at the University of North Texas in 1972. He is the recipient of a 2018 School of Music Camerata Award celebrating the contributions of musicians and patrons of the arts to the University of Utah and broader Salt Lake City community. He maintains a busy schedule of writing and arranging for classical and jazz groups.
To coincide with the Camerata Awards Gala in the fall of 2018, the library prepared an exhibit honoring Prof. Wolking's legacy and many contributions to the School of Music community. The exhibit included pictures and memorabilia, a video interview with the composer, selected recordings of his works, and scores from the collection which he donated to the library.
