For all composers, bringing their work to the attention of performers is a major part of their work, either individually or working with a publisher. This week sees the biannual convention of ACDA (American Choral Directors Association) in Kansas City, to which publishers, performers and composers will be travelling to from all over the world.
Alan Bullard’s music will be available to see and hear both on the OUP and the GIA stands. Oxford University Press have produced the following online material as a backup to their presence at ACDA: you can view an OUP online catalogue for the choral music of Alan Bullard here and, if you have Spotify, there is an OUP playlist of Alan Bullard’s choral music here
