An award for Warland

Posted at 12:22 PM on March 8, 2007 by Don Lee (2 Comments)

Choral conductor and composer Dale Warland adds another honor to his resume Saturday. He'll receive the Robert Shaw Award in Choral Music from the American Choral Directors Association at its convention in Miami. The association makes the award every other year "to honor an individual for lifetime achievement in the choral art."

After more than three decades of standard-setting performances, the Dale Warland Singers gave their last concert nearly three years ago. But Warland stays active composing and guest conducting. And the Singers' final CD is still to be released; Lux Arumque comes out in May.
