Hal Wright has been involved in church music for 35 years. He has produced over 300 full length recording projects, gaining 8 gold records and 1 platinum record in the process. He is the composer/arranger of nearly 200 choral pieces.
Hal has travelled the world with Heart Sounds International, a group of recording engineers with a passion to record indigenous worship in countries where because of economic or political conditions producing music has been previously impossible. Hal has produced projects in Azerbaijan, Bulgaria, Malawi (Africa), China, India and Mongolia.
Having served in several musical capacities in various churches throughout the years, including The Chapel in Akron, Ohio, Hal has gained practical insight into how to build and maintain a successful church music ministry. Now, greatchurchmusic.com is an outgrowth of his years of experience in music ministry.
Hal says, “I have bought a lot of choral music over the years, only to be frustrated with the quality of the music, mis-prints, the inability to make rehearsal discs, back orders, etc… I started greatchurchmusic.com to help directors find music that really works in the local church. I wanted to supply the tools churches need for their music ministries and do so at a cost that even small churches could easily afford.”
In addition to producing various custom recording projects, Hal currently serves as choral director for MajesticVoice Chorus, a community chorus based in Canton, OH
