Choral Director, Choir Named American Prize Winners
Springs’ Director of Choral Music Andrew Dibble has been awarded first place in the 2017–18 American Prize in Conducting (High School Chorus Division), and the Concert Choir has won second place in Choral Performance (School and Youth Division)!
The choral award was announced on The American Prize blog on June 15. The conducting award followed on June 19. Both Dibble and the Concert Choir were named 2017-18 finalists in February after submitting recorded performances to a panel of judges last summer. Dibble was one of two finalists for the conducting award; the choir was one of seven finalists for the choral award.
The American Prize, founded in 2009, invites choral, musical, and theatrical soloists, ensembles, and directors to compete nationally for cash awards and professional recognition.
A huge congratulations to Mr. Dibble and the Choir—and go Springs!
