The University of Oregon Chamber Choir is once again headed overseas, this time to Marktoberdorf, Germany!
The Chamber Choir is one of just ten choirs selected from around the world to participate in the 2015 Marktoberdorf International Chamber Choir Competition scheduled for May 22–27. The Chamber Choir will also tour additional German cities while abroad.
Fans can keep track of the latest news and developments related to the Chamber Choir’s travel preparations by following the University of Oregon Choral Ensembles Facebook page.
The choir is directed by Sharon J. Paul, professor of music and head of the UO’s Vocal Performance and Choral Studies area. Paul was recently recognized with a 2014-15 UO Fund for Faculty Excellence award.
The ensemble is no stranger to success. In May 2013, the UO Chamber Choir, under Paul's direction, won the Fleischmann Trophy at the Cork International Choral Festival. In April 2011, the UO Chamber Choir, again under Paul's direction, took top honors in two categories (Renaissance/Baroque and Chamber Choir) at the 12th International Tallinn Choir Festival in Tallinn, Estonia.
