Stuff About Me:

Vince Peterson is a Brooklyn-based composer, conductor, and keyboardist.  He is the founder of Choral Chameleon, a ground-breaking vocal ensemble in New York City, which has made significant strides in modern choral music and concert programming.  The New York Times called Peterson "authoritative beyond his… years," and The Brooklyn Eaglepraised his work as "a stunning symphony of the spiritual and secular", while hailing him as a solo performer "with depth and vigor" who "provided a universal context which resonated with his audience."

Commissioners and distinguished performers of his compositions include Ars Musica, Cantori New York, The Monmouth Civic Chorus, Ruth Asawa San Francisco School of the Arts, The San Francisco Arts Education Project, and themulti-Grammy® award winning ensemble, Chanticleer, among others.  His works have been performed in major concert halls including Chicago Symphony Hall, San Francisco's War Memorial Opera House, Bela Bartok National Concert Hall in Budapest, Carnegie Hall, and New York's own Metropolitan Museum of Art.  His arrangement of Tom Waits' "Temptation" was called "hard to top" by the San Francisco Chronicle and was recently performed live on Garrison Keillor's "A Prairie Home Companion".  A champion of new music, he is responsible for commissioning and premiering over 100 choral and musical theater works to date.

While maintaining an active career in choral music, he also serves as Organist and Choirmaster of St. Paul’s Carroll Street in Brooklyn, as Artistic Director of The Empire City Men’s Chorus, and Director of Children’s Choirs at The Lycée Français de New York.  He is a member of the Board of Directors of The New York Choral Consortium, where he works to develop the choral art and cultivate new program offerings for NYC choruses, their directors, and their administrators.

His music is published exclusively by Personage Press.
