Composer-in-Residence

Our 2017-2018 Composer-in-Residence: Marco Del Rio

After singing with the choir for five years, Marco is excited to have an opportunity to compose for the Laudate Singers! He began to compose over the course of his music studies at Capilano University and the University of British Columbia, where he worked with composers Jocelyn Morlock and Stephen Chatman. As an experienced arranger, Marco loves to re-imagine works in a different and usually unexpected light. He now brings what he’s learned from many wildly contrasting works and genres into a composition residency with the choir that he hopes will be formative and artistically innovative.
