According to a statement on his publisher's website, Stephen Paulus, a prolific American composer of some 500 populist works, is not doing well.

No, not well at all.

Classicalite quotes: "Paulus Publications is saddened to report that Stephen Paulus suffered a major medical incident on July 4, 2013, for which he is still being treated. Stephen is currently stable, but at this time, the Paulus family requests privacy as they deal with this situation. As more information about Mr. Paulus' condition becomes available, we will keep our friends and customers updated."

Born in Summit, New Jersey in 1949, Stephen Paulus has lived most of his life in Minnesota. He is fluent in all musical genres: orchestra, opera, chorus, chamber ensemble, solo voice, concert band, piano and organ.

In 1973, Paulus co-founded the American Composers Forum, and he continues to work on behalf of his colleagues as the symphony and concert representative on ASCAP's Board of Directors.

His music has been commissioned, recorded and performed by the orchestras of New York, Cleveland, Atlanta and his beloved Minnesota, as well as Washington Opera, Opera Theater of Saint Louis, Dale Warland Singers, Deborah Voigt and Doc Severinsen.

Classicalite wishes Stephen Paulus and his family the safest, and quickest, road to recovery.
