May 2010 from Kiev

It's May, 2010, here in the former Soviet Union.  We as a family have had the enormous privilege of being in Kiev on leave of absence from TWU for the Spring Semester, I serving as Principal Guest Conductor of the Kiev Symphony and Chorus.  We look forward to being back at TWU for the 2010-11 academic year, and if you're interested in singing we have a lot to offer!

Christmas at the Chan Centre  is always a highlight for our singers and this coming fall it will be on the first Sunday afternoon of December, 2010.  The season will also include singing Bach B minor mass with Vancouver Symphony under Bramwell Tovey, singing at Missions Fest Vancouver, and a concert with Vancouver Chamber Choir under Jon Washburn.  Lots of great music to anticipate!

New singers might want to check out my previous posts, where I explain what's in the audition, and something of our vision and objectives.

We warmly welcome singers from all majors.  We have a family of choirs at TWU.  Choirs are a great place to make friends.  Singing is a great way to add variety and spice into your academic schedule.  Singing in a choir counts toward Fine Arts core requirement.

During September orientation week I am available EVERY DAY to meet you, answer questions and hear you sing.  Welcome!
