“As musicians/healers, it is our destiny to conduct an inward search, and to document it with our music so that others may benefit. As they listen to the music coming through us, they too are inspired to look within. Light is being transmitted and received from soul to soul. Gradually, the planet moves from darkness to light.”
– Kenny Werner, Effortless Mastery



“Sound is touch at a distance.”
– Anne Fernald, Professor of Psychology at Stanford University

music with a Purpose…


Peter Vantine has been composing, arranging, and producing music for over thirty years. His music has been featured on the concert stage as well as in various media outlets, including The Biography Channel, The Discovery Channel, The Learning Channel, PBS, Warner Brothers Online, the Salem Wax Museum, and The Learning Company. He was the grand prize recipient of the 2001 Turner Classic Movies Young Composer’s Competition and has produced over 30 music CDs (many of which include his own music) while arranging or performing on many others. In 2014, Peter was nominated for Album of the Year by Whisperings Solo Piano Radio for his album Prayerful Improvisations, featuring original solo piano music and hymn improvisations. His release of the classical piano album Peaceful Classics, dedicated to his late mother and visual artist Ruth Vantine, has helped raise awareness and funding for Alzheimer’s research. In 2021, Peter completed his cantata for choir and “hybrid” orchestra, Vita Aeterna, which was recorded entirely remotely during the COVID-19 global pandemic with over 100 musicians and vocalists from around the world.

explorations in music…


Music has the power to heal, bridge the greatest of divides, and inspire hope in people when they are at their lowest. Simply put, hearts are moved by music. It is humbling for a composer to experience this heart-movement through the music they create. Vita Aeterna (“Eternal Life”) was created with this in mind. This seven-movement cantata for choir and “hybrid” orchestra (a combination of traditional orchestral instruments combined with synthesized sounds) was started in 1990 and completed in early 2020. A live premiere was intended, until the pandemic hit. Virtual performances were then created one movement at a time until the cantata was premiered in its entirety on August 22, 2021. Peter’s hope for this work all along has been two-fold: (1) to bring musicians from all sorts of backgrounds together for a common purpose to shine “lux aeterna” (eternal light) on the world through music, and (2) to unite people to hear the hope of God in a musical setting that is welcoming, inspiring, and perhaps even healing.
