Ibelieve those first two things are requisite for the latter.(Dallas Bergen, back row, left)What was your first ever choral experience?My first choral experiences came from my involvement in churchand school programs as a child but it wasn't until I went to juniorhigh school that I found my passion for choral music. Singingexcerpts of Carmina Burana with the Saskatchewan Honour Choirunder the direction of Doreen Rao was one of my first great choralexperiences. Around that time, during my final year of high school,I decided I wanted to be a choral singer, conductor and educator.What choirs have you sung with?I went on to study for a Bachelor of Music at the University ofVictoria where I was a member of the Chamber Singers and PrimaYouth Choir. I later lived in Thailand and found time to commute toBangkok to sing Messiah with the Thai National Symphony and achoir of Thais and expatriates from around the world-an incredibleexperience! After Thailand I went to New York where I sang witha number of choirs including a performance with Manhattan ConcertProductions at Carnegie HallAre you currently singing with a choir, or planning to?I have been a member of the Canadian Chamber Choir since2001. Upon coming to Toronto I joined the Nathaniel DettChorale and accepted section lead positions with All The King'sVoices and Humbercrest United Church. I am in my third seasonwith the NDC and Humbercrest. I sang with All The King'sVoices for one and a half seasons before being offered theconducting position with the Harbourfront Chorus, an adultcommunity choir, also on Tuesday evenings. I am also the foundingdirector of Univox, a community choir for young adults.Where does your choral singing fit into other aspects of your life?It is the other aspects of my life that have to fit into my life as achoral singer and director! Incredibly challenging - but myorganizational skills are ever improving. I owe tremendous thanksto my conductors and employers for accommodating my erraticschedule of tours, concerts and rehearsals.CONTINUES NEXT PAGEWWW. THEWHOLENOTE.COM 51Back to Ad Index
