ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Marjorie Halloran is a San Francisco Bay Area-based composer, singer, and songwriter. Her love of music began early with preschool piano lessons and singing in kindergarten church choir, and her eventual career in music has been obvious since the beginning.

Marjorie, an accomplished choral singer in addition to composer, has performed with many different ensembles in the Bay Area, as well as in Princeton, NJ, New York City, and with the University of California at Davis, where she received her BA in music theory/composition. She is the co-founder of the choral program at the Vermont College of Fine Arts in Montpelier, VT, where she received her MFA in composition.

Marjorie's compositions have been performed by Schola Cantorum of Los Altos, CA; Resounding Achord of San Jose, CA; and multiple ensembles at Vermont College of Fine Arts.

Ready For Anything, Halloran's debut album, is the culmination of her studies at VCFA.

So much gratitude to all the lovely people who helped make this happen! Thank you to Don, Mike, Jonathan, and the rest of the faculty at VCFA who taught me (almost!) everything I know. Thank you to my wonderful husband Steven, whose unending support and love kept me going, even when I was convinced I would never finish those !@#%ing demos on time, and who has been my biggest fan ever since the moment we met. Thank you to my composer-in-crime Garrett, without whom I would not understand the True Power Of Friendship or why 5am is the best time to write lyrics. Thank you to my fellow VCFA students whom I adore, and will always remember fondly whenever I eat Cabot cheddar after a concert. Thank you to Rachel and Nicole, whose artistic abilities made me look good and my album look even better. Thank you to all the friends I’ve made along the way at HHS, LAUMC, UCD, SJSU, and WCC: you all have helped me be a better musician, and a better person. Thank you to Caroline, Lucia, Eliza, and Jay; I love you guys :D Thank you to my first and best supporter, grama Ruth (I miss you!), my sister Julia, and the rest of my wonderful family... and most importantly of all: thank you from the bottom of my heart to Sylvia and Mike, a.k.a. Mom and Dad, for sticking me on a piano bench as an infant and teaching me the unquestionable knowledge that music would be a part of me forever. I love you all. Vielen, vielen Dank! ~MH
