A Message from SCC Co-Founder
Welcome Mr. Vanderbout
Greetings SCC Family and Friends,
I believe that the Sacramento Children’s Chorus is a powerful asset to the arts community in Sacramento. As co-founder and Artistic Director of the Sacramento Children’s Chorus, for 24 years, I am pleased that David Vanderbout has been chosen to be the new Artistic Director of the chorus.
I have known and worked with David since he was in high school. He studied under Dr. Donald Kendrick, Professor Emeritus in Choral Studies, at California State University, Sacramento, where he received his Master’s Degree in Choral Conducting. He worked with me as an assistant conductor with the high school ensemble of the children’s chorus and was in my class of Choral Methods at the university. He is a hard worker with a passion for choral music, and a desire to work with young people to create beauty and excellence.
He is also keenly aware of how music educates and enhances the emotional and social lives of young people, bringing community and a sense of self-worth. Under David’s direction I look forward to many years of concerts that exemplify the high standards of the Sacramento Children’s Chorus.
Lynn Stevens, Co-Founder & Artistic Director Emeritus
