TESTIMONIAL

VALERIE QUIRING

Former Artistic Director, Bach Children's Choir

“We commissioned Kevin to write a song for our 10th anniversary celebration and were delighted with the outcome. Kevin set the text that we provided beautifully and exactly to our specific requirements. We have received so much positive feedback about the song and about how it touched people at our concert. It was definitely the highlight of our celebration and the whole commissioning process was a great experience. Kevin is a gifted composer and a true professional!”


TESTIMONIAL

ROY KLASSEN

Former Director/Founder, San Joaquin Chorale

“I contacted Kevin Memley in early summer 2011 to commission a "Gloria in excelsis deo" for the San Joaquin Chorale. He gave me a semi-completed copy about two weeks later. During that time he showed me the progressive stages and I was able to give him feedback as to my expectations. However, we have worked together for a number of years so his understanding of what I expected was keen and sensitive. We met together several more times more to solidify the finished product so by the time I needed to mail the music to the Chorale in the middle of July, it was exactly as each of us had envisioned it. Being able to witness his creativity during that process was impressive, to say the least. The speed and exactness of his compositional gift was evident from the first time he showed me the semi-completed project. It was also a privilege, since he is the accompanist for the San Joaquin Chorale, to have him present as we worked through the various facets of the composition.”


TESTIMONIAL

LICIA CLARK

Director, Inspire One

“I felt like I was in a creative master class each time I met with Kevin Memley. His knowledge and listening examples helped me to describe what it was that I was looking for. I never felt rushed in our meetings. When I had a concern about a key change transition - he humbly reworked it until we were all satisfied. Who does that?! The score, orchestra parts, and practice MP3s that he put in my hands almost guarantee an unforgettable performance. The experience of commissioning a work by Kevin Memley has been one I'll enjoy recounting for the rest of my days.”
