Sydney Guillaume’s compositions are known to be intricate, challenging yet highly spirited and have been praised by the Miami Herald for their “impressive maturity and striking melodic distinction.” His choral works continually enthrall choirs everywhere. They have been performed at numerous American Choral Directors Association (ACDA) conferences as well as international festivals such as the World Choir Games and Ireland’s Cork International Choral Festival.
Guillaume (b.1982) is originally from Port-au-Prince, Haiti and migrated to the United States at the age of eleven. His choral works, most with original poetry by his father Gabriel T. Guillaume, have fostered an awareness of the beautiful Haitian culture and continue to serve as an ambassador for his native country. Guillaume is an active member of the choral community as a composer, singer and conductor. In 2013, he conducted the Pennsylvania Music Educators Association (PMEA) District 12 Honor Choir. Nearly all of his choral music have been commissioned works. He’s written for renowned choirs such as the University of Miami Frost Chorale, the Nathaniel Dett Chorale, Seraphic Fire, Illinois Wesleyan University Collegiate Choir, the Saint Louis Chamber Singers, the Miami Children’s Chorus, Kokopelli Choir and the Westminster Chorus.
Guillaume is a graduate of the University of Miami where he studied Music Composition with emphasis in Media Writing and Production. He currently resides in Los Angeles, California where he has also written original film and documentary scores for Loyola Productions.
