Dr. Breland accepted the position of Artistic Director in January 2011. With degrees in Music Theory and Choral Conducting from the University of Georgia and Indiana University, Dr. Breland has a diverse background in many different fields of music, including the piano and saxophone. His first exposure to professional choral music was at the age of 6 as a member of the Atlanta Boy Choir where he performed with Robert Shaw and the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra, as well as in tours and festivals throughout Europe.
Dr. Breland is emerging as one of a new generation of conductors, set apart from others by his eclectic interests and skills equipping him to perform everything from masterworks of the Baroque and Classic eras to great contemporary works. He completed his doctorate in choral conducting at the Jacobs School of Music in 2009. Currently he is on faculty at Creighton University in Omaha, conducting the University Chorus, the auditioned Chamber Choir and teaching classes in history, theory, conducting, voice, appreciation, and diction.
Keith has just recently joined the chorus as accompanist, beginning with our 32nd season. We'll post more information about Keith very soon!
