Rain Worthington

Rain Worthington has a distinct voice within the field of contemporary music. As noted in MusicWeb-International, “… she writes music which speaks to the senses, is packed with real emotion and, most important of all in contemporary music, really communicates.”

Worthington’s emotionally evocative work is nuanced, delicate, powerful and transporting. Her music takes “…ideas of American musical style to a new place – like a walk in a familiar, yet very different park... And isn't afraid to come up with its own startling conclusions.” – Kyle Gann, Chamber Music.

2016 highlights include a solo CD release, Dream Vapors – selected works for orchestra, and the orchestral premiere of Tracing a Dream. “…(Dream Vapors) establishes her as a unique orchestral exponent, an inspired artist saying something definite and compelling today.” – Gapplegate Classical-Modern Music Reviews

World music, minimalism and romanticism have influenced Worthington’s compositional style. Her music has been performed in a variety of venues from New York City to chamber concerts in Spain, Belgium, Italy, Brazil, Iceland, and India.

Eva Ingolf, Miolina, Ricochet Duo, North/South Chamber Orchestra, SEM Orchestra, and the Missouri State University Symphony have premiered Worthington’s music. Her compositions have been featured at the PARMA Music Festival, Hartford Festival of Women Composers, the SCI National Conference, and she was Composer-in Residence at the 2016 MSU Composition Festival.

In addition to composing concert works, she serves as Director of Development for the New York Women Composers.
