“This will be our reply to violence: to make music more intensely, more beautifully, more devotedly than ever before.”

— Leonard Bernstein


“I believe that music should take us on a journey of self-discovery and renewal.  Music should not only entertain us, but should also nourish our souls.”

— Peter Bloesch


“Peter Bloesch is capable of just about anything when it comes to composing music.  His music is majestic and thrilling.”

PBS documentaries


“Peter Bloesch is a wonderful composer, arranger, and orchestrator.  I recommend his music wholeheartedly.  Your orchestra and your audience will be delighted if you perform it!”

— Dr. Christian Tiemeyer,

Choral Music


You can discover my choral music by visiting my choral catalog, my Listen & Watch page, and my YouTube channel (where I present my choral works as engaging music videos).

With so much variety in my choral repertoire (such as voicing, accompaniment, occasion, and difficulty levels), you're sure to find something that is just right for your choir!


A number of my choral works would be perfect for your next All-State Festival!  These pieces are fun to sing and have been audience favorites:  “Old Joe Clark,”  “Simple Gifts,”  “Loch Lomond,” “She's Like the Swallow,” “Sleep,” and “Have You Forgotten?

Holiday Pops


An exciting new piece, ”A Festive Holiday,” is now available. It's been performed to great audience acclaim, and would make a dramatic opening or closing for your next holiday concert!

”Ding Dong! Merrily on High” and ”Go, Tell It on the Mountain!” have been crowd-pleasers on a number of holiday programs across the country.

Many orchestras have programmed my holiday arrangements, including the Oregon Symphony, the Virginia Symphony Orchestra, the Toledo Symphony, Madison Symphony Orchestra, the Phoenix Symphony, the Kansas City Symphony, Orchestra Iowa, the Jacksonville Symphony, and the Lexington Philharmonic — who performed my rousing “I Saw Three Ships Come Fiddling In” complete with Irish dancers!

Film Music


An award-winning documentary film which I wrote the music for has aired multiple times on PBS for a number of years.

“A Friend Indeed: The Bill Sackter Story is the moving account of a mentally challenged man who became a national hero for the disability community.  Click here to explore the music I wrote for this poignant film.


I was recently asked to write the featured song for a new romantic comedy called “Smitten!” which stars Darren Criss (of “Glee”).  This movie was written and directed by Barry Morrow, who won the screenwriting Oscar for “Rain Man” in 1988.  “Smitten!” is scheduled to be released in the near future.
