Reflections: A Lenten Music Special with the Dale Warland Singers
Saturday, 4/11/09, 6 p.m.
Overview | Dale Warland Singers | Dale Warland | Brian Newhouse

Dale Warland grew up in the fields of northern Iowa, singing every day in a one-room schoolhouse and every week in the nearby country church. This was the simple beginning to one of the great careers in American music. His virtuoso 40-voice choir, the Dale Warland Singers, became his 'voice.' Whether celebrating Christmas, providing deeply spiritual experiences through Lent, or inspiring audiences with the sheer beauty of their work year-round, the Singers were a vital part of America's musical life.

For nearly 25 years, Dale Warland brought public radio audiences "Echoes of Christmas," one of the highest-carried holiday programs. In 2004, Dale announced his retirement from leading the Dale Warland Singers, but he remains as active as ever in the wider choral field, composing his own new music and guest conducting around the world.
