Sherry Blevins believes that music education has the power to positively shape and transform lives. She is a music educator, conductor, clinician, and more recently, a lyricist and composer. Since 2017, she has been honored to compose for a variety of singers and ensembles across North America including the West Vancouver School District Honour Choirs, Tennessee All-State Treble Choir, renowned soprano, Rebecca Cook-Carter, the Piedmont Invitational Choral Festival, South Carolina Music Educators National Conference Clinic, Young Voices of the Carolinas, St. Andrews University, and many other all-county and honors choirs. According to Vincent Oakes, Past-President of the American Choral Directors Association - Southern Division and Artistic Director of the Chattanooga Boys Choir, "Sherry Blevins' music is as engaging and enriching for the singer as it is enjoyable for the listener.... With beautifully crafted melodies, tuneful harmonies, and supportive accompaniments, her compositions should find a preferred place with more choirs in the near future."
The winner of the 2018 Claremont Chorale's Composition Contest, Blevins has also been selected for two consecutive years as a composing fellow at the CORO Composer's Institute in Iowa. She was invited to conduct the ACDA Treble Honor Choir which sang her composition, A Tapestry of Music (SSA) for the 2020 Southern Region ACDA Conference in Alabama.
Aside from composing, Sherry frequently serves as clinician for honor choirs, adjudicator for festivals, and holds workshops on choral techniques, composing with choirs, and the motivation of singers.
