Welcome to the composition list of Dr. George Skipworth - symphonic and operatic conductor, concert pianist, concert and operatic bass-baritone, and lifelong composer. The concert works are progressive in nature, in contrast to a host of neo-traditional works composed for specific collegiate and volunteer organizations. Skipworth enjoys composing church anthems in various denominational styles by request. Many of them are listed here, from Southern Baptist to High Anglican.
