Composer Mark D. Templeton

MARK D. TEMPLETON, born 1974, is an American choral composer, conductor, and countertenor. Templeton’s music has been described by the Boston Music Intelligencer as “charming and entertaining, playing with homophony and polyphony, and having a winning way with neo-romantic sweet dissonances.” Some of his music is published by Santa Barbara Music Publishing, and he has recently started to self-publish. His music for men’s voices, including When I Hear Her I Have Wings, has been performed across the world at various international festivals and ACDA conventions. His Missa Brevis  has recently been featured in a doctoral dissertation at Florida State University.

Templeton is also a sought after performer and clinician. He currently sings countertenor with Vox Populi, Delaware’s professional chamber choir. He resides with his wife, Becca, at West Nottingham Academy in Colora, Maryland, the oldest boarding school in the United States, where he is the director of choral activities, music theory, and music composition.  He also enjoys coaching, playing, and watching soccer when he is not working. He is available for commission upon request.
