About M. Ryan Taylor

"Incredible!" "Beautiful music." "I was deeply touched." . . . comments from audience members in reaction to the music of M Ryan Taylor. Taylor is the author of operas like The Other Wise Man and Abinadi, both of which have been produced. Notable song cycles include A Light that Shames the Noonday Sun, All Heaven and it was One Hour Old, Leafs from the Diary of an Old Soul and The Moon Songs (a Vera Hinckley Mayhew Composition Competition winner in 2000). Taylor brings his sensitive vocal writing, born of his own university vocal studies, to his original choral music as well, and, as a former brass and wind player, is equally at home with instrumental chamber and orchestral music. He has written works that have been premiered or performed by the Utah Premiere Brass, The Chicago Brass, organists Neil Thornock and Carson Cooman, the Timpanogos Chorale, the American Fork Symphony and more.
