Henry Wiens’ musical career as a pianist, arranger, and composer began in the country church his father pastored. His gifts of improvisation flowered there as he began to combine traditional gospel music with many other styles. He later refined these talents by studying music theory and composition at the University of MN.
Henry’s wide-ranging musical credits include arranging scores of recordings for a wide variety of artists, performing ragtime piano for “Sesame Street Live,” co-writing 3 nationally published musicals, and composing music for radio & television, as well as published choral music. Henry has recorded 7 piano solo CDs and has performed extensively throughout the country. As a Yamaha artist, Henry's recordings are also available digitally at www.yamahamusicsoft.com.
After years of receiving letters and calls from many grateful listeners coping with grief, chronic pain, and stress, Henry recognized that his music had significant healing potential and began to distribute his CDs to nursing homes, hospices and hospitals across the nation.
Henry and his wife, Dr. Lisa Wiens, reside in Pittsburgh, PA and are proud parents of four daughters: Lora Joy, Stephanie Faith, Joanna Hope and Carolyn Grace.
