Greetings all! <3 Just a little note to let you know that Mary's string quartet-based compositions, for both traditional string quartet AND double-viola string quartet, are now available in the Sheet Music Shop. You can browse the string quartet scores -- as well as Mary's works for solo vocalist, vocal trio, and vocalist/piano -- by visiting the following link:

All scores are pay-what-you-wish. If you end up programming any of the works into your ensemble’s concert season, please do let Mary know! <3

Mary’s orchestra scores will be slowly added in the coming months. In the meantime, if there is a piece of Mary’s currently not listed in the shop that you’d like a copy of, please send her an email!

Thank you to one and all and wishing you a string-filled summer!

Currently listed in the shop are twenty of Mary’s pop and classical works for soprano, mezzo-soprano, tenor, and/or baritone with piano; SATB vocal ensemble or choir; as well as a few chamber music works for double-viola string quartet and woodwind quintet. Large ensemble and orchestra works will also be added in the coming months!

Best of all, all scores are available via pay-what-you-wish pricing (including free). Woohoo! <3
