Dale Trumbore

Los Angeles, CA            

Hailed by the New York Times for her “soaring melodies and beguiling harmonies,” Dale Trumbore (b. 1987) has been widely commissioned and performed by ensembles including the American Contemporary Music Ensemble (ACME), Boston New Music Initiative, California ACDA’s All-State Honor Choir, Inscape Chamber Orchestra, Los Angeles Master Chorale, Los Angeles Children’s Chorus, Modesto Symphony Orchestra, Northwest Symphony Orchestra, Pasadena Symphony, and The Singers – Minnesota Choral Artists. She has served as Composer in Residence for Nova Vocal Ensemble and Artist in Residence at Brush Creek Foundation for the Arts, Copland House, Dorland Mountain Arts Colony, the Helene Wurlitzer Foundation of New Mexico, and Willapa Bay AiR. 

Recently, Trumbore’s choral music was recorded on Choral Arts Initiative’s album How to Go On: The Choral Works of Dale Trumbore, which debuted at #6 on Billboard’s Traditional Classical Chart. Trumbore’s works for voice have also been recorded by Choral Arts Northwest, The Esoterics, New York Virtuoso Singers, and soprano Gillian Hollis. Trumbore’s interest in the convergence of music and language leads her to collaborate frequently with contemporary writers. Her compositions are available from Boosey & Hawkes, G. Schirmer, and MusicSpoke.

Trumbore holds a dual degree in Music Composition and English from the University of Maryland as well as a Master of Music degree in Composition from the University of Southern California, where she studied with Morten Lauridsen and Donald Crockett. A New Jersey native, Trumbore currently lives in Los Angeles.
