Introducing John Hubert, Artistic Director
The Arvada Chorale is excited to introduce John Hubert as our new artistic director. John's first performances with the Chorale will be our holiday concerts on December 9 and 10 (further information to come).
Marla Wasson, who directed the chorale for eight years, stepped down after the 2022-23 season to fulfill her dream of round-the-world travel.
John Hubert is a conductor, singer, instrumentalist, musical collaborator, teacher, husband, father and lover of life from St. Louis, MO. He believes in the power of musical communities to bring people together and explore themselves through their musical repertoire. John has conducted inspiring performances with his ensembles at the First Universalist Church of Denver, Regis University, and The Spirituals Project. He has been a conducting clinician for many other ensembles in the Denver metro area and beyond. John lives in Lakewood with his beloved wife, Christmas and two children Nick and Naomi.
John says, "It is with great joy and pride that I enter into my time as Artistic Director of the Arvada Chorale. I am so excited to begin 'music-ing' with them in August and I look forward to many successful concerts and collaborations in the future. This choir is filled with much talent and commitment and I plan on bringing all that I am as a musician and a person to making this union as successful as possible."
Huge thanks to the performers, sponsors and audiences of The Whole Acalada 2023!
