In 2015, Dr. Don Collins, the founder, owner, and managing editor of Cambiata Press, invited me to become the “new” managing editor. Because of our successes with the Cambiata Institute, our work with the 2014 Cambiata Composition Initiative, and the impact Cambiata Press had in my own early teaching, I accepted his offer.
We have much to do. Organizationally, we plan to maintain the pre-2015, “original” catalogue, as we establish a new collection, the post-2015 catalogue. In the immediate future, we will work through all the pre-2015 titles to verify clarity and to revitalize musical quality. Simultaneously, we will begin to publicize the new Cambiata Press to the nation’s middle school choral teachers and to invite new composers to contribute exciting, quality choral music for the voices of early adolescent boys.
Mission: “Cambiata Press strives to provide quality choral literature that fits the vocal ranges and the literary imagination of early adolescent boys.” — Alan McClung, managing editor
