From featured composer DONALD SKIRVIN
“The Utah Chamber Artists is a composer’s “dream choir” known for its warm and focused sound that is backed by technical excellence and led by one of America’s most talented directors, Dr. Barlow Bradford. The Utah Chamber Artists premiere in 2016 of my work, “Winter Scenes,” was a definitive performance, one that scarcely could be bettered. I am thrilled to have Dr. Bradford and the UCA perform “Alchemy”!”
From guest organist ANDREW SHERANIAN
“I am thrilled and delighted to have the opportunity to collaborate again with my dear friend and first organ teacher, Barlow Bradford, and the Utah Chamber Artists - an ensemble which has been dear to me since childhood. Both of my parents were members of the choir, and I attended all the concerts given by UCA when I was a child. I also have friendships with singers in the choir that were developed during the 2008 Tour to the UK and France, which I was a part of as organ accompanist. One of the most enduring moments of that trip for me was performing at the Sunday morning High Mass with UCA at Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris.”
