Join us Monday, October 3 at 12 pm ET for the next live broadcast of Spirited Conversations: Behind the Scores. Eavesdrop on Atlanta Master Chorale Artistic Director Eric Nelson and composer and writer, Dale Trumbore.
Atlanta Master Chorale will be singing Dale’s 2016 composition “In the Middle” on our upcoming season premiere concerts at the Schwartz Center for Performing Arts on October 14 and 15. Utilizing Barbara Crooker’s poem by the same name, “In the Middle” describes the struggle to connect in the rush of ordinary life and reminds us that time will ultimately catch up with all of us. During their interview, Eric and Dale will take a deeper dive into the piece. You’ll also hear about the path Dale took that has led her to success as a composer, insights into her compositional process, and her advice for other young composers.
Dale Trumbore is a Los Angeles-based composer and writer whose music has been praised by The New York Times for its “soaring melodies and beguiling harmonies deployed with finesse.” Her compositions have been performed in the U.S. and internationally by the Chicago Symphony’s MusicNOW ensemble, Los Angeles Children’s Chorus, Los Angeles Master Chorale, Modesto Symphony, Pasadena Symphony, Phoenix Chorale, Tonality, and VocalEssence. Her choral works have been commissioned for premieres at national conferences of the American Choral Directors Association, American Guild of Organists, Chorus America, and National Collegiate Choral Organization. Dale is passionate about setting to music poems, prose, and found text by living writers. She has written extensively about working through creative blocks and establishing a career in music in essays and in her first book, Staying Composed: Overcoming Anxiety and Self-Doubt Within a Creative Life.
