Brian Mountford lives in New York. He has been a member of C4: The Choral Composer/Conductor Collective as a singer and composer since 2014, and made his C4 conducting debut in 2021. He is also a member of the New York City Master Chorale. He composes for voice, as well as his primary instrument, the piano. He enjoys broadening his choral music with instrumental additions that choristers can perform without any special training, such as a glockenspiel with only two notes, or a specially-tuned autoharp.
