Randall Standridge (born December 5, 1976) is an American composer of contemporary classical music, with an emphasis on music for wind band, as well as orchestra.
Randall Standridge was born in Little Rock, Arkansas. He grew up in the suburbs of Little Rock and attended Sheridan High School. During his childhood, Standridge's brothers tutored him in music, both in singing and in instrumental, though all training was by ear. During this time, Standridge began experimenting with composition.
Standridge received a Bachelor of Music Education in Instrumental Music from Arkansas State University. During his time there, Standridge began studying composition formally with Tom O'Connor. Upon graduating in 2001, he began his tenure as the Director of Bands at Harrisburg High School in Harrisburg, Arkansas. It was during this tenure that his music began to be performed more widely. In 2009, he received a Masters of Music in Composition from Arkansas State University, again studying with O'Connor and with Tim Crist. In 2013, he began a career as a full time composer and designer for the marching arts.
Standridge lives in Jonesboro, Arkansas with his husband, Steven Cazort.
In 2017, Standridge's work The Nine was premiered by the Little Rock Central Band of Little Rock, Arkansas. The work was written in commemoration of the 60th anniversary of the integration of Little Rock Central High School and in honor of the Little Rock Nine.
In 2019, Standridge's work Stonewall: 1969 was premiered by the Lesbian and Gay Band Association. This work was written in honor of the 50th Anniversary of the Stonewall Riots.
