The Colorado State University Chamber Choir.

Chamber Choir goes on tour

The Chamber Choir will tour three cities in Texas from April 18 through April 25. Lead by Director of Choral Activities, James Kim, Ph.D., the choir will:

  • conduct master classes in local high schools
  • participate in clinics with other universities and colleges, and
  • present a number of special performances.

Two performances in Pasadena

Departing for Houston on April 18, the Chamber Choir heads to San Jacinto College in Pasadena to perform in the Jane Corbin Recital Hall on April 19. The ensemble will also visit the University of Houston on April 20 for a joint performance at the Moores School Opera House.  

On April 21, the ensemble moves to Trinity University in San Antonio for a joint performance at St. Luke’s Episcopal Church and work with local high school choirs, including Brandeis and Jefferson high schools.

The tour concludes with additional workshops at Flower Mound high school in Dallas, capped off by a special concert at St. Alban’s Episcopal Church in Arlington. 

Faculty present master classes

The tour will also include CSU faculty members James Kim and John Seesholtz, Ph.D., professor of voice, working with students in master class and workshop settings. Seesholtz, a San Antonio native and new to the CSU faculty, is looking forward to returning to his hometown with the ensemble.

Seesholtz will perform as a soloist with the choir for Gabriel Kahane’s Neurotic and Lonely from the Craigslistlieder. 

During the ensemble’s progress, the choir will reunite with CSU alumni at each stop along the tour. 

Tour has three-fold purpose

"As we travel throughout the state of Texas this spring, the purpose of the tour is really three-fold,” notes Kim. “One priority is to show the quality of the Department of Music, Theatre & Dance and our nationally-recognized vocal/choral program to a wider audience in the country, including our CSU alumni in Texas; to collaborate with other wonderful university and college choirs in the state; and to meet and work with talented high school students who may choose to study voice at Colorado State University.”
