Nicholas Wright

Nicholas Wright's RARB Bio

During his time at Miami University, Nicholas (Nick) had the honor of conducting, performing with, and touring with both the Collegiate Chorale (MUCC) and the Glee Club (MUGC), first under the direction of Dr. Ethan Sperry and later by Dr. Jeremy Jones. His original piece for mixed SATB a cappella chorus, One And The Same, received an international premiere by MUCC at the 2010 World Expo in Shanghai, China.

While at Miami University, Nick studied arranging and composition with Ethan Sperry (choral), Glen Roger Davis (instrumental), Per Bloland (electronic), and Stephen Lytle (instrumental). As a trumpet player, he performed in the 2011 Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade and, in 2012, performed with the MUGC at Carnegie Hall.

Also in 2011, Nick traveled throughout southern India (Bengaluru, Chennai, Kerala, Puducherry) studying and performing Solkattu and Carnatic music in multiple venues including India's most sacred performance space, Kalakshetra. He also had the privilege of collaborating with Grammy Award-winning film composer A.R. Rahman on popular orchestral arrangements of Maa Tujhe Salaam from the film Vande Mataram, and Dil Se Re from the film Dil Se.

In 2012, Nick was hired as the chief arranger for ACappellaPsych, a full-service vocal production company founded by Matt Caruso and based in Princeton, NJ. During his time with ACappellaPsych, Nick created numerous award-winning arrangements for scholastic and professional ensembles worldwide while also expanding his role within the company to include recording engineer, sound editor, clinician, and webmaster. His work as an arranger and sound engineer has garnered several compilation placements, such as Best Of College A Cappella (BOCA) and Voices Only.

Following the death of his wife in early 2020 and the ensuing COVID-19 pandemic, Nick left ACappellaPsych. After some needed time away, he returned to making music with others in 2021. Nick currently lives in Cincinnati, Ohio, where he regularly contributes to works of both vocal and instrumental music as a composer, arranger, orchestrator, clinician, and producer. Since 2008, he has written music for ensembles around the world.
