New Director, New Accompanist, New Season
Tuesday evening, June 11, 2013, Itasca Community Choir was privileged to audition two outstanding candidates for the position of artistic director. As singers left, several commented, “Good luck. I’m so glad I’m not on the Board.”
The decision was not easy, but after careful deliberation, Itasca Choral Society President Charlie Talley entertained a motion to offer the 2013-2014 artistic director contract to Sam Evans. Sam graduated from Concordia with a BA in vocal music education.
Accompanying the choir this season will be Stuart Boehr, the Zion Lutheran music director. Stuart looks forward to relinquishing the baton to a director and doing what he loves best—supporting the ensemble from the keyboard.
The Board greatly appreciates all who turned out for the reading chorus and provided feedback. After Labor Day, we'll see you Tuesday evenings from 6:30-8:30 at the Zion Lutheran Choir Room. Plan ahead and bring your friends.
