Heather Sorenson is an internationally known composer, arranger, and songwriter from Dallas, TX, whose works are performed in churches, universities, and concerts worldwide. She is contracted by the Hal Leonard Corporation, the largest print music publisher in the world, and has hundreds of compositions in print through various publishing houses. Initially recognized for her skill as a pianist, she is now widely known for her choral, piano, and orchestral works. Heather has performed multiple times at Carnegie Hall, Lincoln Center, and Constitution Hall, and her works are performed regularly at competitions, concerts, recitals, and churches worldwide.
Diversity is the characteristic that makes Heather somewhat of an anomaly in the industry: she easily maneuvers both the traditional and contemporary genres of Christian music, often combining the two for a unique blend that has become her artistic fingerprint.
Years of experience as a church music administrator and music educator have proven to be invaluable experience, and teaching has become a large part of Heather’s ministry. She taught all elementary levels of music at Grace Academy of Dallas for 4 years, served as an adjunct music professor at Baylor University, and has served on many master class panels in piano and songwriting. Heather regularly is a guest speaker and conductor at churches across America, and leads 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 spare time, she loves catching up with friends over coffee, reading, and trying new-to-her restaurants. A list of “favorites” would include the perfect bowl of mashed potatoes, a great pair of heels, visiting beautiful churches, and exploring historic cities. She also collects stained glass windows and old newspapers with major headlines. Heather makes her home in the Dallas, TX area with her beloved (and very vocal) beagle, Lucy.
