I met Heather Sorenson for the first time at the Alleluia Church Music Conference at Baylor University in July of 2018. She was sharing her latest work and she has many beautiful Psalm settings including Psalm 23 that our Field Street Choirs have done.
Here is a link of the Cleburne Community Chorale singing Heather’s anthem Psalm 23
Heather Sorenson entered the church music industry in her twenties, and her name quickly became a welcomed fixture in the publishing world. Perhaps the most unique characteristic of Heather’s music is her ability to mix both traditional and contemporary genres of Christian music that is so exceptional to her creative abilities.
Initially recognized for her skill as a pianist, Heather is now known for her compositions in choral anthems, solo piano collections, and orchestrations. Her works are performed regularly at competitions, concerts, recitals, and churches worldwide.
While her career has taken her to many large stages, Heather’s heart is leading the local Church in worship, and she feels that her greatest calling is using her music to connect people with God.
Years of experience as a church music administrator and music educator have proven to be an 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.
Heather lives in Dallas with her beagle Lucy.
She’s a good example of modern worship leadership and working talents to the God’s will.
