Snapshots: Chamber Singers Perform at MMEA Conference

| January 24, 2014

The Webster University Chamber Singers await sound check before performing at the Missouri Music Educators annual conference Jan. 23.

After the MMEA Conference, the Chamber Singers next prepare for April’s divisional ACDA convention in Little Rock, Ark.

The Webster University Chamber Singers, under the direction of Trent Patterson, performed at the 2014 Missouri Music Educators Association conference at Tan-Tar-A Resort in Osage Beach, Mo. on Jan. 23. Mezzo soprano and professor of Vocal Studies Martha Hart was the featured soloist, and music faculty member Joseph Neske served as pianist.

Department of Music chair, Jeffrey Carter, introduced the performers. “Our jazz band played here in 2007, and tonight we witness the arrival of our choral program, now in its fourth year of leadership by Dr. Trent Patterson,” said Carter. “Music programs including vocal studies and music education at Webster University have been accredited by the National Association of Schools of Music since 1952.”

The Webster University Chamber Singers are a select group of undergrads and graduate students, many of who are music majors. In April, they will perform as one of five university choirs selected to sing at the divisional ACDA convention in Little Rock, Ark.
