Composers Connect And Inspire At Choral Directors Convention
American Choral Directors Association convention in Dallas
Three composers recently sat down with John Clare to discuss new music, choral music, and what it's like working as a composer in the 21st century.
- Roxanna Panufnik is a composer living in London, UK and has a new release, Love Abide.
- Ben Parry is a composer who has performed with the Swingle Singers, and is the director of the National Youth Choirs of Great Britain.
- JAC Redford is a composer who is based in Los Angeles, working in both the classical and film worlds. Most recently he arranged and conducted Adele’s Oscar-winning title song for Skyfall.
The topics ranged from marketing new music, finding poetry, and being in an audience of choral experts listening to world-class singers.
