If you’ve ordered music recently from YRM, you’ve likely already been in touch with Nils. He’s charged with processing music requests and handling customer correspondence. He also helps to keep the office in order, and assists the publisher with special projects.
Nils is originally from Marblehead, Massachusetts and studied music at the Berklee College of Music in Boston. He also pursued additional music studies at Bates College in Maine and at the Rotterdam Conservatory in the Netherlands. As a composer he likes to experiment with various electronic mediums, and has produced a number of ambient/alternative tracks on which he performed as a vocalist, guitarist and bassist. Nils is also a part-time photographer and is always searching for creative techniques and methods for his photographic endeavors.
He claims to have played field hockey in high school… with the girls. We’ll just have to trust him on that.

Dale joins the YRM team as a score editor (specializing in Sibelius digital notation) and will soon be a contributing writer/blogger here at Choralicious.com as well.
She’s a native of Chatham, New Jersey, and just recently moved to Los Angeles to pursue her master’s degree in Music Composition at the University of Southern California. Along with her graduate studies, Dale keeps active composing a variety of concert works covering the spectrum from choral to instrumental. Her string quartet “How it will go” was premiered last fall by the Kronos Quartet, and she’s currently completing a commission for the Orange County Women’s Chorus to be performed this May. In addition to composing, Dale is an accomplished pianist and choral singer (she’s been performing this past year as a soprano in the USC Chamber Singers).
Dale may apparently live and breathe music, but she also holds a black belt in karate!
