Stephen Cleobury, director of music at King’s College in Cambridge, England, travels to Utah for a concert with the Utah State University Chamber Singers at St. Thomas Aquinas Catholic Church. The special performance is Thursday, April 25, at 7:30 p.m.

 

“This will be an evening of beautiful choir music held in the St. Thomas Aquinas Catholic Church with its lush acoustics,” said Cory Evans, associate professor in the Caine College of the Arts and director of choral activities.

 

The Chamber Singers, together with the Salt Lake Community College Chamber Singers and the Cache Children’s Choir, will perform under the direction of Cleobury, and will be accompanied by Richard Elliott, organist for the Mormon Tabernacle Choir.

 

Cleobury is the current music director at King’s College and also conductor emeritus of the BBC Singers. For 26 years he conducted the Cambridge University Musical Society, directed the premiere of Peter Maxwell Davies’ The Sorcerer’s Mirror in both Cambridge and London and was president of both the Royal College of Organists and the Incorporated Association of Organists. Also an organist, Cleobury has performed in Hong Kong, Salt Lake City, Denmark and other venues worldwide.

 

Elliott is one of the five principal organists for the Mormon Tabernacle Choir in Salt Lake City. He has studied and practiced music for more than four decades and has been coming to USU regularly for more than 22 years to teach master classes and perform. Elliott is known for his background in jazz and popular music, often performing improvised pieces.

 

An Evening with Stephen Cleobury of King’s College in Cambridge, England, is free and open to the public. The performance will be held at the St. Thomas Aquinas Church located at 725 S. 250 East in Hyde Park, Utah. For more information on the concert, visit the Caine College of the Arts Box Office in room 139-B of the Chase Fine Arts Center on USU’s campus, call 435-797-8022 or see the Caine College’s Production Services website.
