Faith & Music Workshop
About The Workshop
Dan Forrest's career path has taken him from arranging hymns for offertories at his church, to performances of major works for chorus and orchestra all around the world. Join us as Dan reflects on his path, God's calling, Christian vocation, and what it means to be a Christian in the arts — not just in church music, but in the professional concert music world as well. Dan will discuss a Christian perspective on beauty and the arts, and how it provides motivation and purpose for all of his endeavors; the class will also include plenty of time for open Q&A and discussion.

About Dan Forrest
Dan Forrest has been described as having “an undoubted gift for writing beautiful music….that is truly magical” (NY Concert Review), with works hailed as “magnificent, very cleverly constructed sound sculpture” (Classical Voice), and “superb writing…full of spine-tingling moments” (Salt Lake Tribune). His music has sold millions of copies, and has become well established in the repertoire of choirs in the U.S. and abroad.
Dan’s choral works have received numerous awards and distinctions, have been premiered in major venues around the world, and have been featured on national radio and TV broadcasts. His major works Requiem for the Living (2013) and Jubilate Deo (2016) have quickly become standard choral/orchestral repertoire of ensembles around the world, and his newest major work, LUX: The Dawn From On High (2018), is now receiving similar critical acclaim.
Dan publishes choral music with Hinshaw Music, Beckenhorst Press, and, recently, through his own company, The Music of Dan Forrest (distributed by Beckenhorst Press). He holds a doctorate in composition and a master’s degree in piano performance. His academic background includes several years as a professor and department head (music theory and composition) in higher education.
