Orchestral & Choral works

His passion for writing music in collaborative disciplines also extends to other mediums including symphonic compositions and arrangements which have been performed by major orchestras worldwide.

In addition, his sacred choral works are available exclusively through J.W. Pepper.  

Stephen currently resides in Southern California with his wife and is an affiliate with BMI.
