Heather Sorenson Concert

Christian Life Center at Dickson First Methodist Church

Saturday, April 27th at 6:00pm

Heather Sorenson is an internationally known composer, arranger, and orchestrator whose works are performed in churches, schools, universities, concerts, and competitions worldwide. Initially recognized for her skill as a pianist, she is now widely known for her choral and instrumental works, with hundreds of compositions in print through various publishing houses including Hal Leonard, Shawnee Press, Alfred Music, the Lorenz Corporation, Hope Publishing, Lillenas, Fred Bock Music, and others.

Eclectic in her musicianship, Heather easily maneuvers the contemporary, traditional, and classical genres of music. Her ability to navigate such a wide diversity of style and venue earns her the qualification of being one of the most versatile musicians in the industry. Her recent commissions include works for Texas A&M University and the John F. Kennedy Memorial Foundation, in addition to many privately-funded commissions. Her latest extended commissions are Requiem and These Ancient Words, large works that live in both the concert hall and the sanctuary.

Over the past several years, Heather has appeared multiple times at Carnegie Hall, Lincoln Center, and Constitution Hall in the roles of pianist, composer, and conductor. Although her career is sometimes on a big stage, Heather’s heart is leading the Church in worship, and she feels that her greatest calling is using her music to connect people with God.


Teaching has been a large part of Ms. Sorenson’s career. She taught all elementary levels of music at Grace Academy of Dallas for 4 years, served as an adjunct instructor at Baylor University, and was Music Associate at Lavon Drive Baptist Church (Garland, TX) for fourteen years. She has served on many master class panels in piano and songwriting, and is a sought-after guest speaker and conductor at churches across America, leading scores of sessions each year at various worship conferences, schools, and universities. 

Currently Heather spends her time juggling a full writing load as well as traveling as a guest artist and lecturer. In her free time, she is usually planning and performing benefit concerts for her favorite non-profit organizations. She makes her home in the Dallas, TX area with her dog Darla.
