Miriam Overholt is an active composer who is frequently commissioned to write
for orchestras and choirs. Her music has been widely performed and has been
featured at the prestigious Midwest Clinic, an International Band and Orchestra
Conference in Chicago, Illinois. She is director of Camp da Capo, a chamber
music retreat for adult wind and string players sponsored by Chamber Music
at the Barn in Wichita, Kansas, and is also the Director of Music for Church
of the Savior in Wichita.
Much of Mrs. Overholt’s composition background comes from her studies
with Dr. John Levitt and Dr. Walter Mays, Distinguished Professor of Music
at Wichita State University. Gaelic Gathering is the third piece in her trilogy
of music for strings inspired by the British Isles. Irish Fantasy and A Scottish
Journey are the other two works in this trilogy. Neil A. Kjos Music Company
has published all three works separately.
