In addition to his commercial recordings, Belshaw’s music was performed throughout the United States and abroad, including England, Austria, Germany, the Czech Republic, Russia, and Spain. Most notably, Belshaw’s Victory Day Overture for concert band received its world premiere in the Great Hall of the Moscow Conservatory. His Oofdah Fanfare premiered in the Imperial Concert Venue of the Schonbrunn Palace in Vienna, Austria.
Belshaw graduated from Texas Tech University in 2000 and began a career at Wayland Baptist University. For 15 years, he taught, performed, and generally led his students toward success in their respective musical endeavors.
For several years he served as a pianist for College Heights Baptist Church, sometimes providing a slightly more modern rendition of the old hymns. In August 2012 he was named composer-in-residence of the Plainview Symphony Orchestra. The position, created specifically for Belshaw, was given in great admiration of his music.
We are honored to have worked with Belshaw during his artistic journey, and we know his music will ring on for years to come. Join us in reflection as we listen back through his catalog of works and celebrate his life.
