Webster Chamber Singers Selected for Prestigious Appearance

| June 26, 2013

The Webster University Chamber Singers, led by Trent Patterson

The Webster University Chamber Singers will present a main session concert at the American Choral Directors Association (ACDA) biennial divisional conference, March 19-22, 2014 in Little Rock, Ark. Of the 34 universities that submitted performance applications, only five collegiate choirs were selected to appear at the 2014 conference in Little Rock, through a blind audition process.

This will be the first performance of a Webster University choir at an ACDA conference and also the first time that any university in the St. Louis region has appeared on a divisional ACDA conference program.

“People will work their entire careers to try and earn one of these coveted spots,” said Jeffrey Carter, chair of the Webster University Department of Music, located in the Leigh Gerdine College of Fine Arts. “A convention appearance of this caliber puts the school on the map.”

Webster Chamber Singers, made up of music majors as well as other majors at Webster, is led by Trent Patterson, director of Choral Studies and Music Education.
