St. Paul, Minn. — In his mid-twenties, but already an accomplished composer of choral music, Joshua Fishbein is the winner of the National Lutheran Choir's 25th Anniversary Choral Composition Competition. His new work, May the Words of My Mouth, will be premiered this weekend by the NLC.

Fishbein joined host Steve Staruch on Thursday afternoon. The composer talked about his career and shared recordings of some of his choral works.
