Denice Rippentrop Biography 02/03/1948
8270 N. Hayden Road #2047, Scottsdale, AZ 85258 612 207-8477

Composing innovative, high-quality sacred and secular choral music is the core of my professional and personal life. I use my writing to bring modern choral music to audiences in a highly creative yet accessible manner. My works have been performed and broadcasted in this country and abroad. Beautiful Star was published internationally by Plymouth Music Company in 1991. Since founding Beautiful Star Publishing, Inc. in 1992, my compositions have been receiving significant national performances by churches, high school choirs, college choirs, children’s choirs and community choruses.

Still cooking!
I was glad to find your music online at CDBaby and went to your website and bought All Glory . Now, if I can find it again... Among other things I am a DJ at WOMR FM In Provincetown, Ma. We reach a wide audience including all of Cape cod, the south shore of Ma and we reach all the ships at sea. We are online also at My show, THE LATEST SCORE presents 21st century classical music. I have two of Denise's albums and love to play from them. She is a True Believer and like the ancient church builders, carvers,
sculpturers and musicians who were steeped in their religion, their work gleams with power today. I think this is true of Denise Rippenthorp and her music.
