Originally from Port-au-Prince, Haiti, Guillaume (b. 1982), blends his cultural roots with his American upbringing to create a sound unlike anything heard before. The Miami Herald praised his work for its “impressive maturity and striking melodic distinction.” Guillaume, a University of Miami graduate, commissions works for many nationally recognized ensembles including Seraphic Fire, Illinois Wesleyan University Collegiate Chorus and The Young New Yorkers Chorus.
His music has been performed at ACDA, All-State conventions, and abroad. Beyond choral music, Sydney also writes film scores for Loyola Productions, a non-profit creative media company, aiming to promote awareness of cultural and social justice issues. Sydney currently resides in Los Angeles.
