Dale Trumbore

From EverybodyWiki Bios & Wiki

Dale Trumbore (born November 15, 1987) is an American writer and composer. Born in New York City and raised in New Jersey[1], she currently resides in Los Angeles. Trumbore has served as Composer-in-Residence for Nova Vocal Ensemble and Choral Chameleon. [2]

She is the author of the book Staying Composed: Overcoming Anxiety and Self-Doubt Within a Creative Life.[3] Trumbore has written for online music magazines NewMusicBox and 21CM[4] and writes the quarterly Composer's Corner column for Cantate Magazine.

Trumbore composes for voice, chamber ensemble, and orchestra, and her music has been performed in the United States, Asia and Europe. She composes frequently for chorus[5] and often sets contemporary poetry to music in her compositions. [6] Her composition "How to Go On", a thirty-minute secular requiem for a cappella chorus, leaves certain music decisions up to the performers and conductor.[7][8]

A full-length album of Trumbore's choral music, also called "How to Go On", was recorded by Choral Arts Initiative and released independently in 2017.[9] Trumbore's choral music is published by G. Schirmer and Boosey & Hawkes.

Trumbore holds bachelor's degrees in Music Composition and English from the University of Maryland, College Park[10] and a Master of Music degree in music composition from the USC Thornton School of Music. At the University of Southern California, Trumbore studied with acclaimed American composer Morten Lauridsen.[11]
