Utah Composers and more conducting

July is a busy month for the Salt Lake Choral Artists. Don't miss the next great SCI sessions we've got lined up!

Session 5: July 13-19

Session 5 is titled "Utah Composers: Sacred and Secular Choral Music by Composers from Utah." Especially good for families, this session is in collaboration with the Madeleine Choir School. Elementary and junior high students will enjoy daily choral rehearsals at the Madeleine Choir School. Additionally, they can choose enrichment classes in subjects such as composition, violin, handbells, conducting, keyboard, and movement. The youth portion of this session lasts from July 13-19.

Adult singers will enjoy singing sacred and secular choral music by Mack Wilberg, Ronald Staheli, Thomas Durham, David Naylor, Cameron Rose, Jane Fjeldsted, Marie Nelson Bennett, Murray Boren and others. The adult portion of this session lasts from July 16-19.

The session concludes with a free Saturday evening concert and a Sunday performance at the Cathedral of the Madeleine.

Intermediate/Advanced Conducting Workshop: July 13-17

Raise the level of your artistic, technical, and aural conducting skills. Scheduled in conjunction with the Salt Lake Choral Artists Summer Choral Institute, students will have opportunities to conduct the Institute Choir as well as members of the SLCA Chamber Choir in standard choral literature. Selected repertoire will include the sacred and secular music of Utah composers. Topics of discussion include advanced score study and preparation, performance practice, diction, rehearsal techniques, and ensemble unity. The week's activities will culminate in two public performances featuring selected conductors from the class.

The workshop is taught by Dr. Brady R. Allred.

We'll see you there!
