The Sterling Singers will be doing our devotional on Sunday.
The Sterling Singers is made up entirely of volunteers from Utah’s Wasatch Front. Its more than 300 active singers range in age from 14 to over 70. The choir was founded in 1994 by Sterling Brimley, the CEO and President, with only 30 singers, and has grown in size and skill under the direction of conductor and artistic director, Kelly DeHaan. In recent years, the choir has flourished with the additional talents of associate conductor and organist, Matthew Thompson; organist wife, Sharee Thompson; and piano accompanist Danielle Christianson. The Sterling Singers annually perform several gratis concerts in venues including the Salt Lake Tabernacle, Abravanel Hall and Libby Gardner Concert Hall at the University of Utah. A highlight of the choir’s activities is a traditional Christmas concert. Past performances have included a concert of Dr. Crawford Gates’ works, as well as the debut of his original opera, Joseph, Joseph; the Requiems of Brahms, Rutter and Fauré, John Rutter’s Gloria and Magnificat; the 150th Commemoration of the Mormon Battalion, Ludwig van Beethoven’s Ninth Symphony with the Lyceum Philharmonic Orchestra, among others. The choir is privileged to be frequently invited to sing sacred musical selections in Worship Services and Choirsides.
