An Interview with Brian Mitchell

Hello, fellow choral directors!

Stuart Hunt, a long-time friend, just sent me a video “interview” with Brian Mitchell, former choir director at Mark Morris High School (Longview) and past president of the Washington ACDA. Brian received a standing ovation for a talk on a similar subject at Washington’s Summer Institute a couple years ago. This time Brian speaks of the transcendental nature of choral music…in a way, sort of explaining the unexplainable as to the why of what we do as directors and as singers.

Now, don’t even open this link to Brian  unless you have about 20 minutes of quiet time to view it. It’s marvelous, and you’re going to want to watch it all the way through!

Best to you!
