Choral Music


We Make Music

We Make Music was commissioned by the Marin School of the Arts under the direction of Stevie Greenwell for their award-winning treble choir. The piece features aleatoric sections that reflect the “scatted shards of scattered stars” of Drew Dellinger’s poem.


Of All of Them; the first, the last

Of All of Them; the first, the last was written for the CalArts Contemporary Vocal Ensemble and features processed female voices, tenor soloist (Julian Karahalios), alto soloist (Drew Corey) and cello soloist (Linda Rife).


We Begin Again

We Begin Again features Drew’s signature blend of choir and extended piano technique. Premiered by the CalArts Contemporary Vocal Ensemble and featuring Drew on piano.


Esse Domi

Esse Domi was commissioned by the Marin School of the Arts for their 10 year anniversary. Performed at the Marin School of the Arts Showcase by their Concert Choir, directed by Stevie Greenwell.


Media Vita in Morte Sumus

Media Vita in Morte Sumus translates to “In the midst of life, we are in death.” This piece for SSA choir was recorded by Drew and features a lilting, dark, almost ominous tone.


Ambrosia

Ambrosia was commissioned by the Marin School of the Arts for their Spring Showcase. Performed by the Marin School of the Arts Concert Choir, directed by Dr. Jenny Bent.
