BRISBANE’S ST Andrew’s Uniting Church Sanctuary Choir has been blessed with the talents of conductor Katherine Chan who graduated in June with the degree Master of Music (Choral Conducting) from the University of Washington, in Seattle, USA.
Ms Chan was appointed to the conducting position at St Andrew’s in February this year after finishing her coursework at the University of Washington in January.
She previously graduated with a Bachelor of Music Performance and Pedagogy from the Queensland Conservatorium of Music, Griffith University.
She is an accomplished pianist, singer and clarinettist, but her great musical love is choral music.
When not conducting at St Andrew’s, Ms Chan is busy with her roles as co-music director of Vox Pacifica Chamber Choir (at St Andrew’s), music director of the Australian Youth Choir (National Institute of Youth Performing Arts Australia), and advertising manager for SingOut, the magazine of the Australian National Choral Association.
St Andrew’s Sanctuary Choir sings at the 9.30am Sunday services. Membership is open to interested singers.
