NDSU Music Welcomes Dale Warland
January 12, 2012
North Dakota State University (NDSU) Music was pleased to welcome celebrated composer/conductor Dale Warland as an artist-in-residence, January 9-11.
Warland spent the residency working with students in both group and individual settings. He critiqued the NDSU Concert Choir and Madrigal Singers, met individually with graduate students to discuss their academic and career plans, and completed the residency with a student convocation.
Warland has made an unforgettable impression on the landscape of choral music both nationally and internationally. He founded the Dale Warland Singers, a vocal ensemble known for its exquisite sound, technical finesse, and stylistic range. Additionally, Warland has received highest honors for his work, including the Choral Arts Society of Philadelphia’s Individual Leadership in Choral Music Award, Champion of New Music Award from the American Composers Forum, and the prestigious ASCAP (American Society of Composers, Authors and Publishers) Victor Herbert Award. He received a Grammy nomination for best choral performance and has received honorary doctorates from the University of Minnesota and Macalester College.
Warland’s work as a conductor has allowed him to work with choirs throughout the world.
