Michael John Trotta, Conductor
Michael John Trotta 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 the 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 and at national conventions, and his recordings are broadcast worldwide. The 2016-2017 season features world premieres of three new major works and the release of three new albums, including the much-anticipated Septem Ultima Verba (Seven Last Words). Dr. Trotta is a full time composer and conducting living in New York City with his wife, Rachel.
