Scott Perkins, composer

“. . . perfectly orchestrated . . . haunting . . . a remarkable and welcome musical surprise. . .”

—Terry Ponick
The Washington Times

“The choral works of Scott Perkins show elegance, depth, craft, and nobility. They are at once sophisticated and singable. I recommend this music highly.”

—William Weinert
Editor, American Choral Review
Director of Choral Activities, Eastman School of Music

German Debut

On March 19, mezzo-soprano Julia Mintzer, who premiered Scott’s opera Charon at the Kennedy Center in 2012, and pianist Ellen Rissinger will give the first German performance of Scott’s music! They will perform “The Right of Way” from Scott’s Songs from Spring and All as part of a program of American art song at the Semperoper in Dresden. Click here for more details.
