WITH OVER 10 YEARS OF ARRANGING EXPERIENCE, SHAMS HAS PROVIDED CHARTS FOR MANY DIFFERENT TYPES OF GROUPS ALL OVER THE WORLD.
Described as both “regal” and “emotional”, as well as “modern” and “sleek”, his unique approach to phrasing and constructing arrangements has majorly influenced the a cappella sphere.
Shams’ arrangements consistently enable groups to achieve greater musicality and notoriety. His work and influence can be seen yearly in ICCA/ICHSA sets all over the country, as well as on CARA Awards and compilations, like BOCA, Sing!, and Voices Only.

I don’t know that we have EVER worked on such a rich and textured piece as “Rise Up”. It is truly a brilliant, well-constructed and powerful piece. The texture is rich and complex and yet it is still very approachable. The kids absolutely LOVE it.
