Every year at our competition we come together for awards in the afternoon.It's been a dream of mine for all of us to sing together and praise God as a choir when we end our day. This year we have arranged a wonderful experience for you all. We are organizing the chorus now and are very blessed to have Dr. John Sinclai serve as our conductor.
Dr. Sinclair is the John M. Tiedtke Professor of Music at Rollins College. He teaches conducting, a variety of other classes as needed and serves as the primary conductor for the Department of Music. He is also celebrating his 32nd season as Artistic Director and Conductor of the renowned Bach Festival Society of Winter Park. He also currently conducts the International Moravian Music Festivals, the Messiah Choral Society and and conducted for the Berkshire Choral Festival and numerous others.
Dr. Sinclair is also a conductor of the Candlelight Processional at EPCOT and has conducted recordings for Warner Brothers, Walt Disney Corporation, the Moravian Music Foundation, and the Bach Festival Society.
