Casarow Selected as Guest Director

CCC Professor Dr. Pattye Casarow recently appeared as a guest director at the ProMusica Arizona Warland Workshop. Chosen from among a large number of applicants, Dr. Casarow was blessed to work with Mr. Dale Warland, well-known American conductor.

The ProMusica Community Chorus held a one-day workshop with Mr. Warland in which four conductors were given the opportunity to work with the legendary conductor on their technique and composition. Each guest conductor was given four pieces of music and were told to prepare to conduct one of the selections. After an anonymous drawing and a little “switch” with a fellow conductor, Dr. Casarow was thrilled to conduct “How Many Bards,” a piece of music by composer Michael Richardson. Dr. Warland instructed the conductors on how to improve their techniques, while praising their individual styles.

“It was an amazing opportunity; I was blessed to be a part of this event and CCC will, in turn, be blessed by Mr. Warland’s instruction.” Dr. Casarow presently serves as Professor of Music, Chair of the CCC Music Department, and director of the CCC College Choir.
