Sydney Guillaume (b. 1982), originally from Port-au-Prince, Haiti, came to the United States at the age of 11. His compositions have been praised by the Miami Herald for their "impressive maturity and striking melodic distinction." In 2004, he was named the Outstanding Graduate for the Department of Music Theory and Composition at the University of Miami Frost School of Music, where he received his Bachelor of Music in Composition with an emphasis in Media Writing and Production.
Taking great pride in his Haitian roots, Sydney hopes that his music will serve as an ambassador for his country and foster an awareness of the beautiful culture that exists amidst the economic and political turmoil. Sydney is in high demand for commissioned works from renowned choirs such as The University of Miami Frost Chorale, The Nathaniel Dett Chorale, Seraphic Fire, Illinois Wesleyan University Collegiate Choir, The Young New Yorkers Chorus, The Miami Children's Chorus, and Kokopelli Choir. His music has been performed at ACDA, All-State conventions, and abroad. Beyond choral music, Sydney also writes film scores for Loyola Productions, a non-profit creative media company, aiming to promote awareness of cultural and social justice issues. Sydney currently resides in Los Angeles.
