MARFA LIVE ARTS PRESENTS:
CHOIR CONCERT WITH ANNA TEAGARDEN
Concert // Sunday, February 18, 2018
Crowley Theater, 7pm (Doors open at 6.30pm)
On Sunday, February 18th, Marfa Live Arts presents a free Choir Concert featuring soprano Anna Teagarden, musicians Kate & Leah Teagarden, and a choral group of Marfa students singing show tunes, sacred music, and folk songs.
The performance is at the Crowley Theater and will begin at 7pm (doors at 6:30pm.
This event will mark the end of a three-day workshop with Anna Teagarden and Marfa students. Teagarden says, “I want the kids to take away what joy can come out of making music in an ensemble, everyone is working together for a common purpose. Everyone thinks team sports is the best thing to form that type of community, but there is a study that shows the happiest people in the world are the people who sing in choirs. There’s something with endorphins that happens to you when you’re singing in a group. You depend on each other, it’s community building through music.”
Currently, Marfa ISD students do not have choir available to them at school. This free Marfa Live Arts’ music program is an opportunity for them to learn about music and sing in a choral group. Students who are participating in the Choir Concert are: Lily Aguero (2nd grade), Ayden Alvarez (3rd grade), Mae Bamburg (3rd grade), Charlotte Browning (4th grade), Madison Cash (3rd grade), Ashley Certain (5th grade), Ummi G. Chanez (7th grade), Zechariah Dodson (4th grade), Gage Dodson (7th grade), Kassandra Garcia (5th grade), Davan Jones (6th grade), Shelby Laviers (9th grade), Alayna Nation (4th grade), Zaley Porter (6th grade), Sara Salgado (4th grade), Stella Shepard (6th grade), and Janayah Villa (5th grade), with technical support from Cristian Ontiveros & Juan Avila (8th grade.)
Teagarden has been Director of Children's Music at St. Paul’s United Methodist in Houston since 2005, and directs over one hundred children weekly in various choirs. Teagarden is a member of Bach Society, and manages the Royal School of Church Music Gulf Coast Course, a course for aspiring young women singers. She received her Master’s Degree in Voice Performance from the University of Texas, and was the Head of Fine Arts at The Fay School. Acclaimed for her musicality and versatility, she has sung in many of the world's great Cathedrals, including Westminster Abbey, Ely Cathedral, Exeter Cathedral, York Minster, National Cathedral, St. Thomas 5th Avenue in New York, and Thomaskirche Liepzig. Teagarden also sings with the RSCM National Choir, and performs regularly as a jazz vocalist with leading jazz musicians.
According to Teagarden, “audience members can expect to be thoroughly entertained – it’s joyful experience. You’ll leave being super happy.”
