Delvyn Case III is a composer, conductor, scholar, performer, concert producer, and Professor of Music at Wheaton College of Massachusetts.

As a professional musician he works as a composer, conductor, and pianist, equally at home in the worlds of classical and popular music. As a church musician he’s worked in virtually every context and every genre. He’s conducted major works like Handel’s Messiah, led an 80-voice gospel choir, played organ at Roman Catholic, Episcopalian, and UCC churches, and played keyboard on praise teams at many Evangelical churches.

As a composer, he’s written a symphony, an oratorio, an opera about anti-Semitism, and chamber and vocal pieces which have been performed by Grammy-winning artists Richard Stoltzman and the Chestnut Brass Company, among many others. Much of my concert music explores themes from the Christian tradition. He’s also written pieces for educational outreach concerts, which have been heard by over 10,000 children across the world. But his most popular piece is his holiday overture Rocket Sleigh, which been performed by over 80 orchestras in the US, UK, and Europe.

In 2019 Delvyn founded Deus Ex Musica, a unique ecumenical organization that promotes the use of sacred music for learning and spiritual growth. Among their projects is the Deus Ex Musica Podcast in which interview Christian musicians working in various genres about how their faith impacts their work.
