I'm Dale Trumbore, a composer and writer based in Southern California. I make my living composing, writing, and speaking about my work.

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

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" and is newly available as an audiobook.
