Salt Lake Children's Choir

Director: Ralph B. Woodward

Salt Lake Children's Choir


The Salt Lake Children's Choir, founded in the fall of 1979 by Ralph B. Woodward, as long regarded as one of the finest ensembles of its kind in the nation. The choir consists of boys and girls, generally between the ages of 8 and 15, who hail from the Salt Lake Valley and nearby communities. It emphasizes natural vocal production and works of the immortal masters, as well as oustanding folk and contemporary music from around the world. The children have sung music from the countries of Sweden, Norway, Finland, Slovakia, the Czech Republic, Hungary, Poland, Ukraine, Russia, Bulgaria, France, Germany, Austria, Switzerland, Namibia, Zambia, Mexico, Venezuela, Chile, Bolivia, Brazil, Spain, Portugal, Japan, Korea, China, and Native and African America. A prize winner in international competition, the choir has appeared with many internationally celebrated artists and organizations -- including Grant Johannessen, Frederica von Stade, Marvin Hamlisch, Pete Seeger, Kurt Bestor, and on numerous occasions with The Mormon Tabernacle Choir and the Utah Symphony, with whom it has also recorded. The choir has been featured at several conventions of the American Choral Directors' Association, and has been heard on Public Radio International and PBS. Its singers are also regularly requested for major sound-tracks and promotions, including projects for CBS, NBC, and Walt Disney Productions).

Salt Lake Children's Choir : A Day In Spring

Review: Founded in 1979, The 35-strong mixed-voice SLCC has come to be regarded as one of the finest ensembles of its kind in the country, and is known at home and abroad for its artistry and its inspiring, angelic sound. Founder/director Ralph B. Woodward leads these talented children through 24 lovely (piano accompanied) pieces, from Grieg's "Greeting" and "De Norske Fjelde," " Brahms' "My Heart Is In Bloom" and "Song of the Skylark," Schumann's "In The Open Air" and "Moonlit Night," and Franz' "The Rose Sighed," to Scottish folk tunes "Ca' The Yowes" and "Sweet Woodlark," French folk tune "Il Pleut, Bergere" and Slovakian folk tune "Zalet' Sokol," the sweet voices and perfectly chosen material take us to a wonderful place. The ensemble concludes with "Air," "Little Lamb," Psalm Twenty-Three," "Evening Prayer" and "A Day In Spring," by which time we're ready for our story and to be tucked in to bed. Lovely and recommended.
