Linda Spevacek

Over the past 2 decades Linda Spevacek has become one of the most successful composers in modern choral music. She has sold more than 7 million copies of over 700 published compositions and arrangements. Linda has continued to keep her compositions original and creative while maintaining the consistency and integrity that has given her a world-renowned reputation. Dynamic, inspiring, creative and expressive are just a few words that describe the level of excellence found in every Linda Spevacek composition, arrangement, seminar and reading session.

In addition, singers from all over the world performed her arrangements twice on the nationally televised 'MENC World's Largest Concert' on PBS. Several of her works have been premiered at annual conventions of the American Choral Directors Association, the Music Educators National Conference and on the 'Hour of Power' at the Crystal Cathedral. Linda was a featured conductor at Carnegie Hall in New York in 1999.

Her work has won repeated awards from the American Society of Composers, Authors and Publishers (ASCAP) in recognition of her outstanding achievements and success.

She has composed commissions for many large massed groups around the country (many of these compositions have become signature pieces for the choirs). In addition to membership in ASCAP, Linda is a member The American Choral Director's Association (ACDA), The Music Educators National Convention (MENC), the National Teachers of Singing (NATS), and Sigma Alpha Iota (SAI), a professional sorority of women musicians.

In addition to her published titles, she has authored seven choral collections, five piano books and six vocal collections. Her latest book, The Choir Director Guide to Success is co-authored by Randy Pagel of Henderson, NV. She has produced a successful video called The Choral Director as a Voice Teacher. Linda's compositions, arrangements and books, are published by Heritage Music Press, Hal Leonard, Jenson, Shawnee, Santa Barbara Music Press, Laurel Press, Roger Dean, Triune Music, Exaltation, Sacred Music Press, Lorenz, Warner Brothers and Kimmel Publications.

Linda's energy and devotion to working with singers at all levels have resulted in numerous invitations as guest conductor for various national, state, regional and choir, church, and school honor festivals. Linda's schedule includes conducting, judging and teaching across the United States and Canada.

Linda has an education degree from the University of Wisconsin in Madison with her primary emphasis on voice, piano and theory. She has since worked extensively with elementary, junior and senior high school choirs, community choirs consisting of youth, high school, college and adult levels as well as church choirs of all sizes and denominations.

Linda is one of the most sought after judges, workshop and reading session clinicians in the country. Her dynamic clinic presentations include a variety of topics from vocal technique, creative programming, teaching musical sensitivity through literature, success with the non-singer, recruiting and teaching males, editing accompaniments, composing a mini-opera, creative workshops combining youth/adult choirs, working and recruiting the male singer and a motivational/inspirational sessions.

Linda pursues her full time writing career from her home. She lives in Phoenix, AZ where she maintains a diverse voice studio.

Linda Spevacek : Accompanied Christmas Gems for 2 Part Treble Choirs

Review: The new voicings of this best-selling arrangement of the Spanish Carol, 'Riu, Riu, Chiu,' include text options for English or Spanish. Tambourine and hand claps lend a festive, colorful flair. Whether performed with or without piano accompaniment, the limited ranges, repetitious form, and opportunities for solos yield built-in success for holiday programs. The vibrant, festive original, 'Merrily Sing Noel!' is a marvelous opener or change-of-pace selection. Its fanfare-like style and bright mood also offer nice, effective dynamic contrasts. Superb treble writing! 'Christmas Madrigal Roundezvous' is a sparkling, festive, and extremely clever original madrigal, sung in a round, with a contrasting, lilting middle section. The uplifting lyrics of 'A Festive Madrigal' begin that bright, jovial original madrigal, which 'sings in' the holiday season. A marvelous, accessible choice which also works well for smaller ensembles.

Linda Spevacek : Sacred Christmas Carols for Mixed Voices

Review: 'Alleluia' was commissioned for performance at the 1999 National ACDA Convention. A hushed chant is woven into dramatic musical lines and lush harmonies that later fade to an ending of quiet splendor. With the grandeur of a more challenging work, this piece sings easily, enabling accessibility to a variety of performing groups. Spevacek has 'Lo, How a Rose E'er Blooming' in a sensitive, transparent fashion with lush harmonies and textual contrasts. 'A Jubilant Gloria' is an exceptional work that offers driving rhythmic excitement from its fanfare-like opening to its exhilarating conclusion. This sophisticated piece sings easily and sounds gloriously full.

Songlist: Alleluia, A Jubilant Gloria, Lo, How a Rose E'er Blooming
