James Engebretson

James EngebretsonWisconsin native, James Engebretson is a liturgical music arranger now living on Yonah Mountain in Sautee-Nacoochee, GA. Life as a choir director started as a high school student when the regular director had a health emergency and continued on to most of his life. The great sacrifice for a Minnesotan was always missing the fishing opener but making beautiful sacred music with dedicated choir members was always more gratifying. He received his BA in Music Ed  from Luther College in Decorah, Iowa and his MA from Drake University where he studied composition with Francis Pyle. Also at the U of MN he studied electronic music and computer music notation. He taught instrumental music for 37 years in Iowa and Minnesota and worked as a jobbing horn player in the Twin Cites. He has performed with with the St. Paul Chamber Orchestra, Guthrie Theatre, Minnesota Orchestra, North Metropolitan Brass Quintet and the Lake Wobegon Brass Band.  He has more than 80 trio and quartet arrangements for younger players published with Ed Sueta Publications as well as more advanced brass and woodwind quintet arrangements with Grand Mesa Music and online with JW Pepper ePrint.  His two-volume work of Hymns for Ensembles gives instrumentalists young and old the opportunity to participate in services by playing along with popular Evangelical Lutheran Worship songs. These arrangements are ecumenical as they are also indexed by hymn tune name.  All parts have the melody and a harmony part so with organ they are useable with any size group, even just one player.
