Commissioning

Sarah regularly collaborates with choral leaders to compose music specially designed for their ensembles.  Whether for a choir or church anniversary, choral festival or new music initiative, Sarah treasures working directly with conductors and choristers to create a work that fits their spirit and voice.  Fees vary according to length, instrumentation and voicing. 

Please contact Sarah directly to inquire about commissioning.
