Greg Bartholomew's music is frequently performed across the UnitedStates and in Canada, Europe and Australia.  National Public Radio classical music reviewer Tom Manoff wrote:

Greg Bartholomew, a fine composer not afraid of accessibility, set Walt Whitman's To a Locomotive in Winter in a sturdy, lyrical style. Tuneful and diatonic, the music seemed appropriately Whitman-esque.

Bartholomew's works have been performed by such highly-regardedinstrumental ensembles as Third Angle New Music Ensemble, the AlaskaBrass, and the Aeolian Winds of Pittsburgh, and such acclaimed choralensembles as Seattle Pro Musica, the Oratorio Society of Minnesota andAustin Vocal Arts. Beneath the Apple Tree, for viola da gamba and recorder, won First Place in the 2006 Orpheus Music Composition Competition. Leo, commissioned by the Esoterics, was a Finalist in the 2007 Cincinnati Camerata Composition Competition.
