Sunday Concert Series to feature Mapleton Chorale

r The highly regarded Mapleton Chorale will be featured in concert on Sunday, April 16 April 30, at the Springville Museum of Art as part of the Sunday Concert Series. The concert, which is free to the public, will begin at 4:30 p.m. and last about an hour.

The Mapleton Chorale was founded in 1994 by a small group of Mapleton residents with a love for choral music and a desire to rehearse and perform a broader repertoire than generally found in a traditional church setting. This dedicated community choir seeks musical excellence in every piece and enjoys singing a variety of music including classical, spirituals, folk songs, sacred hymns and popular tunes.

The Mapleton Chorale cultivated its unique style and reputation for audience-pleasing musical selections originally under the skilled direction of Ryan Murphy, who was followed by Andrew Crane. Conductor Cory Mendenhall continued the tradition of musical excellence for nine years, building the choir to 130 members strong and leading the chorale to performances in New York City’s Lincoln Center and the Tabernacle on Temple Square.rPatrick Tatman now serves as conductor of the Mapleton Chorale.

Tatman is a native of western Pennsylvania. He currently serves as the choral director at the Waterford School where he oversees choral music studies at the middle and upper school levels. Tatman holds a master’s degree in choral conducting from Brigham Young University and a bachelor’s degree in music education from Penn State University. His career includes teaching choral music at the elementary, secondary and university levels in Utah, Colorado and Pennsylvania.

On May 21, the Sundance Trio will perform for the Sunday Concert Series. The Sundance Trio — oboist Geralyn Giovannetti, bassoonist Christian Smith and pianist Jed Moss — are faculty members at Brigham Young University, and composer David Sargent was, until his retirement in 2008, a composition professor at BYU.
