Dale Trumbore has been called “a rising star among modern choral composers” (AXS), and her works have been praised for their “soaring melodies and beguiling harmonies” (The New York Times). She has been commissioned and performed by organizations including the American Choral Directors Association (ACDA), Inscape Chamber Orchestra, Los Angeles Master Chorale, Los Angeles Children's Chorus, The Master Chorale of Tampa Bay, Northwest Symphony Orchestra, The Singers – Minnesota Choral Artists, and VocalEssence, among many others. Trumbore has served as Composer in Residence for Nova Vocal Ensemble and Artist in Residence at Brush Creek Foundation for the Arts, Copland House, and the Helene Wurlitzer Foundation of New Mexico. Trumbore's interest in the convergence of music and language leads her to collaborate frequently with contemporary poets, and she has written about music for CA ACDA's Cantate Magazine, the Center for New Music, MusicSpoke, and NewMusicBox. Trumbore's works for voice have been recorded by Choral Arts Northwest, The Esoterics, New York Virtuoso Singers, and soprano Gillian Hollis. Recently, Choral Arts Initiative released How to Go On, a new album devoted to Trumbore's choral works that charted as a #4 best-selling album on iTunes Classical. Trumbore holds a Master of Music degree in Composition from the University of Southern California, where she studied with Morten Lauridsen. A New Jersey native, Trumbore currently lives in Los Angeles.
