Conductor Keith Lockhart chose Boyer for the Boston Pops’ 125th anniversary commission honoring the legacy of John, Robert, and Ted Kennedy. The premiere of Boyer’s "Kennedy Brothers" in 2010, narrated by Robert De Niro, Morgan Freeman, and Ed Harris, was attended by members of the Kennedy family, and received extensive national media attention. The Boston Pops also performed the work on their Fourth of July Fireworks Spectacular for an audience of over 750,000; gave it two separate telecasts; performed it at the Tanglewood Music Festival with narrator Alec Baldwin; and released its recording.

Boyer’s major work "Ellis Island: The Dream of America" has received over 150 live performances by more than 65 orchestras, making it one of the most-performed American orchestral works of the last decade. His recording on the Naxos label was nominated for a GRAMMY® Award for Best Classical Contemporary Composition.

In addition to his work for the concert hall, Boyer is active in the film and television music industry. He has contributed orchestrations to more than 20 film scores, for leading Hollywood composers including Thomas Newman (the James Bond film "Skyfall"), James Horner ("The Amazing Spider-Man"), Alan Menken, Michael Giacchino (the Oscar-winning "Up," "Star Trek," "Cars 2," "Super 8," "Mission: Impossible III"), Mark Isham ("Dolphin Tale," "The Conspirator"), and Harry Gregson-Williams ("Arthur Christmas"). Boyer has twice arranged music for the Academy Awards, and composed music for The History Channel. His music has appeared in documentary film, short films, and a variety of television programs.

Boyer’s work has been profiled and/or reviewed in such media outlets as the Associated Press, USA TODAY, Variety, CNN.com, New York Times, Los Angeles Times, Boston Globe, Dallas Morning News, Hartford Courant, Symphony Magazine, BBC Music Magazine, Gramophone, and many others.

As conductor, Boyer has led such orchestras as the Brooklyn Philharmonic, Hartford Symphony, Rhode Island Philharmonic, Richmond Symphony and Pasadena Symphony in concert, and has conducted recording sessions from London’s famed Abbey Road and AIR Studios to the scoring stages of Los Angeles.

In recent seasons, Boyer has served as Composer-in-Residence of the Fort Worth Symphony Orchestra (2010-11) and the Pasadena Symphony (2012-13). He holds the Helen M.
