Spivey Hall Honor Treble Choir Workshop Performance
Dr. Andrea Ramsey, conductor
Spivey Hall’s Treble Choral Workshop provides outstanding middle school singers and their teachers with some of the finest musical training in the nation. The challenging workshop culminates in a public performance; teachers may earn professional learning units by observing the rehearsals.
Spivey Hall welcomes Dr. Andrea Ramsey as the 2014 Treble Honor Choir conductor.
Conductor, composer, and teacher, Dr. Andrea Ramsey is the newly appointed Associate Director of Choral Studies at the University of Colorado Boulder. A native of Arkansas, Dr. Ramsey enjoys teaching and working with singers of all ages and guest conducts and presents regularly throughout the United States and Canada. Her engagements for 2014-2015 include opportunities in Georgia, Colorado, Florida, Oklahoma, Kansas, Texas, Virginia, Mississippi, and Alberta, Canada.
As a composer, Ramsey has approximately 70 choral works in publication with an array of publishers including Alliance, Boosey & Hawkes, Carl Fischer, Colla Voce, Hal Leonard, Santa Barbara and Walton Music. Enjoying the opportunity to serve as composer-in-residence when possible, she maintains a unique relationship with the Allegro Choirs of Kansas City where she has toured with the choirs to Austria, the Czech Republic, and Italy, and has also enjoyed residencies this past year with the Crescent City Choral Festival in New Orleans and the Choral Music Experience Institute at Ithaca College in Ithaca, New York.
Teachers may nominate middle school students for this opportunity. Participating students must commit to attending all rehearsals and performances in full.
