Dr. Anthony W. Randolph, DMA, The Catholic University of America 2006, MM, Howard University 1988, BM, Howard University 1982, is a composer, pianist, and music historian with extensive teaching experience at the university and primary levels. Dr. Randolph has served on the music faculty of the Benjamin T. Rome School of Music at The Catholic University of America, and is currently Associate Professor of Music at Howard University.

Recent compositions by Dr. Randolph include Requiem Mass for the African-American Slave for orchestra, chorus, and soloists, Baghdad, the Day After, for orchestra, muezzin, and audio CD, How Long, O Lord, an electronic composition and video compilation chronicling the struggles of African-Americans from the slave trade to the present, as well as multiple chamber works.

A 2005 commissioned composition, titled Songs of the Forgotten War, was a group commission inspired by the Korean War Memorial in Washington, DC. Dr. Randolph was on of the nineteen composers commissioned to reflect upon, and compose a one-minute composition on one of the nineteen bronze soldiers of the memorial. Songs of the Forgotten War had its world premiere at The Catholic University of America in spring 2005 as the third of the four-part President's Concert, "Waging Peace: Making Music in Time of War." Songs of the Forgotten War was a feature piece on WAMU radio's "Metro Connection" in summer 2005, and received a second performance at the Kennedy Center's Millennium Stage, August, 2005, with both performances favorably reviewed by the Washington Post. Other commissions include To Do Battle in the Land, The John Brown Story, a documentary film on the life of abolitionist John Brown for the United States Parks Department, Harper's Ferry National Park, Harper's Ferry, WV. To Do Battle in the Land was recorded by the Howard University Concert Choir and instrumentalists under the direction of J. Weldon Norris.

Fanfare, a composition for orchestra and chorus by Dr. Randolph, was premiered by the Catholic University Symphony Orchestra and Chorus at the Annual Christmas Concert under the direction of Leo Nestor, at The Basilica of the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception, Washington, DC, December, 2003. The concert was broadcast on The Eternal World Television Network and on Howard University Television, WHUT.

Dr. Randolph is a member of The American Society of Composers, Authors, and Publishers (ASCAP), The College Music Society, and The American Composers Forum. He served as Interim Chair of the Deparment of Music for the 2014-2015 Academic Year, and was appointed Chair in August 2015.
