POWELL, Wyoming — Big Horn Basin community members, students and teachers alike are invited to learn and improve their choral singing from Grammy nominee Roger Treece in a free Choral Summit Saturday, Feb. 20.
The day is dedicated to experiencing music in a noncompetitive, communal way. It includes informal performances, a workshop with Treece and an extended CircleSinging masterclass, plus lunch and a pizza dinner.
“Roger’s creativity and unique approach to vocal music is inspiring, and his enthusiasm is infectious. I am very excited for students and teachers to have the opportunity to work with him,” Brennan Baglio, NWC’s director of choirs, said.
Treece has been nominated for five Grammy Awards as an arranger, producer, singer and engineer. Since 1983, he’s produced and/or arranged over 40 record albums for artists like Josh Groban, The Manhattan Transfer, Bobby McFerrin, Barry Manilow, The King’s Singers, rapper Z-Trip and many others.
He’s composed for the Chicago Symphony Orchestra, United Arab Emirates Ministry of Culture, Danish Radio Symphony and Choir, Los Angeles Master Chorale, Chicago Children’s Choir and more.
