Encinitas CA— Having made his home in San Diego since 1995, Roger Anderson continues to be a conductor much in demand while balancing his time as Music Director for Rincon Middle School, Escondido. He has conducted at the California’s Women’s Chorus which sponsors an annual convention of singing groups from Barbershop to Jazz. He will also conduct a newly formed rock band and chorale called Rock The Band. RTB focuses on rock music that utilized big, gospel-style vocal harmonies. RTB had their premier concert at the Encinitas Library Community Room at the end of April.
The Roger Anderson Chorale supports young artists by donating a portion of their proceeds from each concert to the Institute for Young Dramatic Voices, based in La Jolla, CA. The Institute hosts summer workshops for people with big voices ages 15–36. As the Roger Anderson Chorale grows, he plans to host a scholarship program for aspiring musicians; to host a countywide choir festival and to partner with the young artist program through the National Association of Teachers of Singing (NATS).
The chorale’s final free performance for their 2018 season will be May 26th and 27th at the Encinitas Library Community Room.
Roger’s eclectic multi-cultural programming pulls from choruses from well-loved operas featuring Michelle Law, Soprano who is part of San Diego Opera’s Young Artist Program; contemporary chorale composers such as Daniel Elder (b. 1980) who is influenced by the repetitive beat of electronic dance music, South African influenced beats, and a medley from the much beloved Les Miserables.
Roger will also draw from San Diego County’s talented musicians to accompany the chorale. This finale is not to be missed.
