New Artistic Director
Jennifer Heder, director of choirs at Spanish Fork High School, will join the Wasatch Chorale as Artistic Director beginning January 2017. Heder replaces long time conductor Reed Criddle and becomes the 6th Artistic Director in the Wasatch Chorale’s forty-two year history.
Jennifer Heder earned her Bachelor of Arts degree in Music and a Masters in Choral Conducting from Brigham Young University. While studying, she was a member of BYU University Singers, Concert Choir, and Women’s Chorus. She was the co-founder of Utah Collegiate Singers and the co-conductor from spring of 2013 until spring of 2014.
Heder is “thrilled to get the chance to work with such serious musicians in the Utah County community. The Wasatch Chorale has a reputation of performing challenging, yet richly rewarding repertoire. I plan to keep with that tradition as we move forward.”
“The Wasatch Chorale has also had a strong sense of community outreach over the years,” Heder explains, “and I am excited to continue with both the Messiah Sing-along/Play-along and the Orem Choral Festival.” She plans to continue collaborating with Utah arts organizations, such as the Utah Valley Symphony, and professional musicians along the Wasatch Front.
The Wasatch Chorale will “strive for choral excellence” with Heder at the helm for their Wednesday evening rehearsals. Wasatch Chorale welcomes singers in all vocal ranges to attend a rehearsal and audition for the choir. For more information or to schedule an audition, please contact the choir at firstname.lastname@example.org.
