Southwestern Division Conference: Ouachita Singers
Date: February 22, 2014
During the 2014 Southwestern Division Conference, ACDA will present . . .
Ouachita Singers, an auditioned choral ensemble of forty-six students, represents the Ouachita Baptist University Division of Music through concerts in schools and churches throughout Arkansas, the surrounding region, and around the world. Formed in 1957, the Ouachita Singers have a rich and varied history of outstanding choral performance. Their membership includes primarily music majors from outstanding high school programs throughout Arkansas and the South and Southwest. The choir has been selected to sing in divisional and state ACDA conferences and has collaborated with the Arkansas Symphony Orchestra on several occasions, most recently on Beethoven’s Ninth Symphony and Brahms’s Requiem. Their recent travel activities have included two European tours (2006, 2010) and extensive concertizing throughout the United States. Their musical selections range from the masterworks of choral literature to music of contemporary composers and are available in a well-received series of compact disc recordings. Their latest CD Sing Me to Heaven was released last fall.
The ACDA Southwestern Division Conference will take place March 19-22, 2014, in Little Rock, Arkansas. You can register NOW.
