Inversion Ensemble Administrative Team
Trevor F. Shaw, Artistic Director
Trevor Shaw is an Austin, Texas-based musician who stumbled into the world of choral music by accident. While earning a degree in trombone performance from the University of North Texas, Trevor was approached to become the Music Minister for the United Methodist Campus Ministry. Accepting the position led to a lifetime career in church music and the urge for Trevor to compose and arrange for the various choirs he was conducting. He has since led choirs throughout the U.S., the UK and Ireland. His choral and instrumental works have also been performed by many church choirs, professional ensembles and academic choirs across the U.S. Trevor is also very active as a private music instructor, a singer and instrumentalist, and maintains a widely-read music blog. He is co-owner of and principal arranger for the professional a cappella company, Tinsel. Trevor’s diverse musical influences include composers such as Herbert Howells, Richard Wagner, Arvo Pärt and Herbie Hancock.

Adrienne Inglis, Outreach Coordinator
If you want to ask Adrienne Inglis about learning piano and flute in Berkeley as a child or about her music degrees from Lewis and Clark College and University of Texas at Austin, make sure she's not near a window because she's easily distracted by birds and will stop speaking suddenly if she sees one. So it won't surprise you that her compositions often include bird sounds. Luckily, her family history research draws her to other topics such as her Ojibwe, Venezuelan, Scottish, and colonial roots. Her choral, chamber, and orchestral compositions also sometimes explore nature, scripture, Shakespeare, and bugs. She lives in the rural hill country of central Texas, freelances, and teaches flute at Southwestern University and plays principal flute of the Central Texas Philharmonic. She puts down her binoculars to perform, record, and tour with flute/harp duo, Chaski. As a founding member, she composes and sings with Inversion Ensemble. Adrienne Inglis is a member of the American Composers Forum and A.S.C.A.P., the American Society of Composers, Authors, and Publishers.
