Trumbore is a native of Chatham, New Jersey, and was recently profiled in NJ Monthly Magazine’s feature “New Faces New Jersey.” Trumbore moved to Los Angeles in 2009 to pursue her master's degree in Music Composition at the University of Southern California, where she has studied composition with Morten Lauridsen and Donald Crockett. Trumbore graduated from the University of Maryland with a double degree: a B.M. in Music Composition and a B.A. in English Language and Literature. Her dual interest in text and music often leads her to write music for voice, collaborating frequently with contemporary poets.
