Trevor F. Shaw
A native of Northumberland, Pennsylvania, Trevor was born into a musical family and began performing at a young age. He went on to become a graduate of the University of North Texas College of Music. While still a student there, Trevor became fully immersed into church music. As Director of Music for the Denton Wesley Foundation on the UNT campus, he led choirs on singing tours throughout the U.S., the UK, and Ireland. It was also during that time his professional focus saw a shift towards composition. In 2013, Trevor relocated to Austin, Texas, where he has since been active as a composer, conductor, church music director, private music instructor, and performer. He is well known for his love of new choral music, and as such is a founding member of Inversion Ensemble, as well as its Artistic Director. Under Trevor’s leadership, Inversion Ensemble has grown to include a professional choral ensemble, a 50+ aged volunteer choir, a treble-only choir, and a youth choir. He is also the co-founder and principal arranger for Tinsel, Austin’s premiere a cappella Christmas caroling company. Trevor has directed high school festival choirs, he teaches Texas All-State preparation camps, and leads composition and music theory clinics for both youth and adults. His compositions and arrangements are published through See-a-dot Music, Musicspoke, and Kagarice Brass Editions. Trevor is a member of (ASCAP).
