Durango Chamber Singers Welcome Wesley Dunnagan to the Podium!
Perhaps you have been lucky enough to hear tenor Wesley Dunnagan in concert or recital. Now you will be able to experience his extraordinary musical talent from the podium, as he takes over as Artistic Director for the Chamber Singers beginning with our 2020/2021 season. Click HERE to read Dr. Dunnagan's biography.
Dr. Charissa Chiaravalotti has had to step down as Artistic Director due to her ever-increasing responsibilities as Music Department chair at Ft. Lewis College. We will miss her talent, energy and passion.
Durango Chamber Singers Auditions Postponed
Due to fall rehearsal and concert cancellations, Dr. Dunnagan has postponed auditions for all current and prospective singers to mid-Janaury, 2021. If you sang with the ensemble this past season, you will receive an invitation to audition. If you have not sung with us in the past and would like to audition, please contact Elizabeth Crawford at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Candidates should have choral experience, strong music-reading skills, and be able to commit to regular rehearsal attendance. Rehearsals are from 5:30 to 7 pm Mondays at St. Mark's Episcopal Church, 910 3rd Ave., Durango, and are scheduled to begin the third week in January, 2021, and continue through early June.
