I'm Dale Trumbore, a composer and writer based in Southern California. My schedule looks a little different each day, especially now, but I make my living composing, writing, and speaking about my work. I also send out an occasional letter called poem, piece, post with behind-the-scenes details about current projects. 

I compose most often for chorus, though other recent projects have included works for orchestraThis is the piece I'm proudest to have written, and these are my choral works that are performed most frequently.

I often write about working through creative challenges. My first book, Staying Composed, has been called "a treasure trove of practical strategies for moving your artistic career forward."
