Living in: United States

Allan Robert Petker is a published composer and arranger with over 250 published works with numerous publishing houses. His conducting books, "Choral Questions and Answers" Vols. I, II, III, IV and V, have become staples in school curriculum and for secondary resource material. His crusade to offer a cure for musical illiteracy culminated in the publication of the ADVANCE learning series. As a composer for hire he has written original scores for live performance and has penned a number of original T.V. commercials which have appeared on the CNBC network. Allan holds a Bachelors and Masters degree from California State University at Northridge in music, specializing in viola (BA), voice and choral conducting (MA).

Allan has been involved in the choral music publishing industry for many years. In 1977 he became the Director of Publications for Fred Bock Music Company and subsidiaries, and is currently the Vice President of Publications. In 1989 he established his own company, Pavane Publishing, and later added John Rich Music Press to his portfolio.

As a conductor, Allan frequently serves as a guest clinician or conductor for publishers, choral societies, church festivals, state honor choirs and colleges. In the summer of 1994 he formed Consort Chorale, an ensemble of 50 auditioned voices from the San Francisco Bay area, which maintains an on-going concert series. In 2004 he became the Conductor and Artistic Director for the Santa Clarita Master Chorale, an 80-voice ensemble that performs a subscription concert season with orchestra. In September of 2015 Allan became the conductor of the Los Cancioneros Master Chorale, a 50-voice auditioned choral ensemble based in Torrance. His chorales have toured Europe, Eastern Europe and Russia and are preparing for a trip to Argentina. Allan is a past President of the National Association of Church Musicians.

Since 1989 Allan has been a clinician in two summer church music conferences at Lake Tahoe, "Summer Sing" and "Tuning @ Tahoe".

As an instrumentalist, Allan has done free-lance studio work and occasional concert playing. You may even catch him playing jazz violin and viola at a local pub, one of his favorite things to do.

My Heart Is Yours, O God : SATB : Allan Robert Petker : Allan Robert Petker : Sheet Music : 00225664 : 888680673512

Allan Robert Petker : My Heart Is Yours, O God

With a rollicking 6/8 and 4/4, back and forth, rhythm, this piece dances from the start. Based on Psalm 57:7-10 and Psalm 84:4-7, the text is a song of praise. A contrasting middle section is much slower and more tender. The final section returns to the opening motif and drives to a thrilling conclusion. Easy to medium for church choirs.

Allan Robert Petker : Vocalise

This famous work by Rachmaninoff is known for its beautiful, wandering melody over a luscious chamaeleon-like harmonic foundation. In this arrangement, the accompaniment has been simplified somewhat and a second vocal line added to complement the primary theme. An excellent introduction to the Romantic era!
