HVCC will host their 30th Anniversary Festival with Music Celebrations from June 30 to July 2, 2014 at the LaSells Stewart Center, Oregon State University, Corvallis. Featuring Artistic Directors include Sean Ivory, Artistic Director of the Grand Rapids Symphony Youth Chorus, and Paul Caldwell, Artistic Director of the Youth Choral Theater of Chicago. Several choirs from around the nation will take workshops and perform a combined finale for the public during the 4-day festival.
Caldwell and Ivory works have become staples in the repertoire of many of the world’s finest ensembles. Their music has been telecast on PBS and A&E and performed at Avery Fisher Hall, the Sydney Opera House, and throughout Europe, Asia and Africa. They have been scheduled to conduct three concerts of their music in Carnegie Hall during the 2013-2014 season.
In recognition of Caldwell’s work in this capacity, he and his chorus are recipients of the Chorus America/ASCAP prize for Adventurous Programming. He is a member of the Board of Directors of Chorus America and on the Advisory Board of the New Orleans Children’s Chorus. He was recognized for his contribution to the choral community nationwide at the 2008 National Performing Arts Conference when he was selected as the recipient of Chorus America’s Michael J. Korn Founders Award for Philanthropic Contribution to the Arts.
Ivory is also the choral director at Forest Hills Central High School and an affiliate artist with the Youth Choral Theater of Chicago.
