The public is invited to witness professional vocal tutoring when Barton Community College holds a masterclass forum, from 9 a.m. to noon and 1-3:30 p.m. Saturday, March 12, in the Dorothy Moses Morrison Chapel in the Fine Arts Building on the Barton campus.
Barton students and area high school students will perform and then receive vocal training and advice in a forum setting from guest clinician Dr. Brad Vogel, professor of choral music at Tabor College. Vogel will work with students throughout the day while audience members will have the opportunity to observe the techniques and methods he uses.
Vogel is in his 15th year as at Tabor College. He was a recipient of the Clarence R. Hiebert Excellence in Teaching Award in 2010. He serves as chair of the music department at Tabor and serves as music director for the college’s annual music theater productions. In addition to his conducting activities, he teaches voice instruction, choral conducting, choral music pedagogy, music history and church music.
Vogel earned his bachelor’s degree in Music Education from Tabor College in 1985, his master’s degree in Music in Choral Conducting from the University of Northern Colorado in 1988 and his doctorate of Musical Arts in Choral Conducting from the University of Missouri-Kansas City in 2001.
