David King is the singer to the top left.Mooredale Concerts for the past 14 years. I also enjoy taking in anoccasional community concert, musical, opera, operetta and balletwhen I can. Going to workshops and symposiums is also a greatway to hear new groups and music.I am very inspired when I attend and/or participate as a singer orclinician in school concerts, especially when my two sons areplaying, singing or conducting!What qualities make you admire a choral conductor?It is important to know the music. A choral director whounderstands the voice knows how to get the best out of singers withefficient, effective and enjoyable rehearsals . The late Dr. ElmerIseler was always inspiring - Walter Pitman has just finished a bookabout him. I also think a choral conductor should continue to beopen to new musical ideas by listening to music and reading aboutthe art and history of music making. Conductors, as visionaries,need to be aware of the changing times and prepare for the musicalroad ahead.David Kin~'s next upcoming engagement: preparing All The King'sVoices 15t Anniversary Season.JubilatesingersAUDITIONSDirector Isabel Bernaus leads a chamberchoir with an eclectic, multilingualrepertoire (from Cuba, Argentina, [stonia,fin land, Canada.
