Dana has over 1,000 sacred choral pieces published nationally and internationally from 1990 to 2010.
In recent years, he has turned his efforts to composing for his first love - the strings.
Those efforts resulted in music inspired by the artistry of George Caleb Bingham which was included in a documentary about the American artist.
Dana also embarked on a lengthy composition for strings and percussion - The Oregon Trail Suite – portions which have been performed by the Centropolis String ensemble which Dana leads.
Dana’s music is very personal, deeply felt and affected by place, time, history and personal relationship.
