PROVO The Brigham Young University Singers will become the first and only collegiate group in the nation to perform at all three of the country's top choral music conferences when the group sings at the inaugural National Collegiate Choral Organization conference Saturday in San Antonio, Texas.
The BYU Singers previously performed at the national convention of the American Choral Directors Association in Los Angeles and at the Music Educators National Conference in Salt Lake City.
"It's like winning the grand slam of choral music," said Rosalind Hall, conductor of the BYU Men's Chorus and mixed-voice Concert Choir. Performances at all three conventions are by invitation only.
The BYU Singers is a small, select choir of flexible singer-musicians. As one of the major touring ensembles of the university, the Singers have traveled throughout the United States, as well as Russia, Israel, Australia and New Zealand throughout Western and Eastern Europe, including the Baltic states, and West Africa. The choir has released five solo albums as well as several other collaborative albums.
