Edward Eicker (born May 22, 1975[1]) composes music for piano, organ, voice, chorus and orchestra. His work for strings received its premiere by the Knox-Galesburg Symphony Orchestra, under the direction of Bruce Polay. His organ works have been performed in Chicago's Cathedral of the Holy Name and L.A.'s Cathedral of Our Lady of the Angels.

Eicker's a cappella choral work "The Banishment of Adam and Eve from the Garden of Eden" won first prize in the 2000 Virginia and Seymour La Rock composition contest. In 2007, he was named a finalist in the Outside the Bachs choral composition contest.[2]

Some of his commissions have come from World Library Publications, The CUBE Ensemble and Immaculate Conception in Chicago.
