Tony Thornton Choral Series

A leader in choral music publications, Colla Voce Music was established in 1996. The company is dedicated to publishing quality music literature from around the world. My choral series focuses on mixed chorus works appropriate for high school ensembles, community choruses, and advanced collegiate singers. I am also open to adding excellent treble and tenor/bass repertoire to the series. 

I am interested in receiving works that would fit well into honor choir and all-state choral programs, especially exciting opening and closing concert pieces. Please do not submit extended works. Compositions in the 3-5 minute range are preferred. I love slow, pretty choral pieces, but submissions with faster tempi will capture my attention. 

 If you are a composer or arranger interested in submitting works for consideration, email a PDF of the score and a recording (if available) to Please write “Choral Series” in the subject heading.
