We are pleased to announce that the winner of the 2013 Emerging Composers Competition is Dale Trumbore for her work A Valentine for Hands


Hailed by the New York Times for her “soaring melodies and beguiling harmonies,” composer Dale Trumbore’s compositions have been performed widely in the United States and internationally by ensembles including the 

Kronos Quartet, ACME, the Boston New Music Initiative, and the USC Thornton Symphony. 


Trumbore has received  awards for her compositions from Chanticleer, Center City Opera Theater, VocalEssence, the Harmonium Choral Society, Lyrica Chamber Music, the Society for Universal Sacred Music and the National Federation of Music Clubs, and she has been commissioned by organizations including the American Choral Directors Association (ACDA), the Esoterics, the Millburn High School Symphony Orchestra & Miller Chorus, Six Degree Singers and WomenSing. Trumbore is also the recipient of a Copland House Residency Award, the Artist in Residence Grant at the Helene Wurlitzer Foundation of New Mexico, and the American Composers Forum Subitogrant.


Trumbore's dual interest in language and music leads to her collaborate frequently with contemporary poets, and Trumbore's works for voice have been recorded by the New York Virtuoso Singers (Toward Lasting Peace), Six Degree Singers (Six Degrees of Composers), and soprano Gillian Hollis (Snow White Turns Sixty). Trumbore's choral work The Whole Sea In Motion is published in G. Schirmer's Dale Warland Choral Series. 


Trumbore holds a Master of Music degree in Composition from the University of Southern California, where she studied with Donald Crockett and Morten Lauridsen, and a duel degree in Music Composition (B.M.) and English (B.A.) from the University of Maryland. A native of Chatham, New Jersey, Trumbore currently resides in Los Angeles.
