In the December 2nd issue of the Stratford Crier the Chorus Director for The Sister Cities Chorus was misidentified.
Christopher Andrade is the Chorus Director. He earned his degree in Music Education from Elizabethtown College in Pennsylvania, and has done extensive graduate study in the field of choral pedagogy through Central Connecticut State University’s Summer Music Institute. He also has a long relationship with the Sister Cities Program, having been a member of the first student delegation to Stratford, Ontario while he was a student at Stratford Academy. In addition to his work with the Sister Cities Chorus, Chris is director of choral music and instructor in music technology at Darien High School, musical director of the Trumbull-based Coastal Mix Barbershop Chorus (formerly known as Coastal Chordsmen), and director of music at Holy Trinity Lutheran Church in Trumbull. In those moments when he’s not directing some ensemble or other, Chris enjoys spending time with his wife Maggie and their three children.
The Sister Cities Concert at the Stratford Library is free and open to all.
