ABOUT MICHAEL JOHN TROTTA
Michael John Trotta (b. 1978) is one of the most “exciting and prominent new composers of choral music,” a sought-after conductor, and dynamic clinician. He brings an “intimate knowledge of the human voice,” a “rare sensitivity to the capabilities of a choral ensemble,” and years of experience as an inspiring educator to thousands of singers each year. His award-winning commissions are frequently performed at Carnegie Hall, at national conventions (ACDA, NAfME, AGO, TMEA), and his recordings are broadcast worldwide. Dr. Trotta lives in New York City with his wife Rachel where he works as a full time composer, conductor, and clinician with choirs throughout the country.
The Sandlapper Singers will be collecting new or gently used children’s books for Jubilee Academy, whose mission is to educate and empower underserved and minority youth in our community. Thank you for helping us give back to our community!
