Description

Frank Hoyt Losey (1870 - 1931) was an American musician, composer, and arranger of band and orchestra music. He is credited with over 400 compositions and 2,500 arrangements including his most recognized composition, the march Gloria.

Losey was born in Rochester, New Jersey, and studied music at an early age, learning to play cornet, violin, and piano. He was a cornetist for local and regional bands until he suffered from lip paralysis which forced him to switch to trombone and euphonium.

In 1902, Losey began composing and arranging music for Carl Fischer and became editor-in-chief of the Vandersloot Music Publishing Company. In 1919, Thomas Edison selected Losey to be the music adviser for Edison's phonograph company. He was also approached by Henry Ford to arrange music for the Ford Orchestra in Detroit. Losey died in Erie, Pennsylvania in 1931.
