Celebrate the choral arts! Choir Day brings high school choirs together to hear and be heard by fellow choir members, directors, and NIU faculty members Eric Johnson, Orna Arania and Mary Lynn Doherty.
This year's clinician is Sigrid Johnson!
As the associate conductor of VocalEssence, Sigrid Johnson provides invaluable input on repertoire decisions, choral blend and balance, and in the audition process. Her unique ways of working to achieve excellence in choral blend and intonation have garnered her great praise.
Sigrid is a member of the voice and choral faculty of St. Olaf College in Northfield, Minnesota, and the conductor of the Manitou Singers, St. Olaf's 100-voice first-year women's chorus. Sigrid Johnson maintains an active schedule as a guest conductor and clinician at choral festivals, workshops and all-state music festivals across the country. She is known internationally for her work with musicians at all levels, having conducted workshops in Australia, the Netherlands, Sweden and Finland. In August 2008, she was one of the featured lecturers for the Eighth World Symposium on Choral Music in Copenhagen; in 201, she will be featured in the Ninth World Symposium to be held in Argentina.
Sigrid is active in the American Choral Director's Association, the Music Educator's National Conference, the International Federation for Choral Music, and Chorus America.
