Seattle’s Choral Arts, under Robert Bode, is on a roll
October 3, 2010 -
This is proving quite a year for Seattle’s Choral Arts.
The group’s most recent CD, “Mornings Like This,” won the newly established American Prize in Choral Performance (community division). It was their first recording with artistic director Robert Bode (pronounced “Bo-dee”), now in his fourth year with the ensemble.
Choral Arts also won Chorus America’s 2010 Margaret Hillis Award for Choral Excellence which, Bode explains, takes into account the ensemble’s “organizational strength, financial strength and educational-outreach program, as well as musical excellence.”
