Allan Robert Petker

Allan Robert Petker is a published composer and arranger with over 200 published works with numerous publishing houses. His conducting books, "Choral Questions and Answers" Vol. 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. co0mmercials 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, a post he still holds. In 1989 he established his own company, Pavane Publishing, expanding to include representation for the distinguished English firms, Banks Music Publications, and the Basil Ramsey Catalogue. He later added John Rich Music Press to his portfolio. He is also one of the founding partners of the SING family of newsletters, which has a readership of over 100,000 monthly, world-wide.

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 the  Consort Chorale, an a cappella ensemble of 30 select voices from the San Francisco Bay area, which maintains an on-going concert series. He was appointed the director of the Bakersfield Symphony Singers in 1997, the choral arts affiliate of the Bakersfield Symphony Orchestra. He served as director of the Community College. He currently directs the choir at Marymount College, Rancho Palos Verdes. In 1995 he was the American guest conductor/composer for the Cathedral Choir Tour in England, sharing the podium with such luminaries as Peter Aston, Andrew Carter and John Rutter. He has been an active church choir director since 1973, led concert tours through western America, and is currently the Minister of Music at the San Pedro Presbyterian Church in California. Allan is a past President of the Choral Conductors Guild.

As an instrumentalist, Allan has done free-lance studio work and occasional concert playing. His specialized understanding of both instrumental and choral music enables him to be a sensitive and communicative conductor. As a composer, Allan's works have been performed all over the United States, including the commissioned piece, "Speak of Peace," premiered at the American Choral Directors Association 25th National Convention. He received noted acclaim for his Christmas cantata "Canticle of St. Augustine," a work in five movements for choir and orchestra, which was recorded by the London National Philharmonic and published by Gentry Publications.
