We are excited to announce gospel vocalist Debra Bonner as this years guest artist. After graduating from the University of Michigan with a Master's Degree in Vocal Performance, Debra married her sweetheart, Harry. Three months later they served a Baptist mission in Liberia, West Africa. Prompted to return to the States, Debra became an inner-city high school choir director. She then moved west where she spent over 20 years training, and was a close associate of Seth Riggs, the most celebrated singing coach in the pop industry. Debra spent 9 years with world-renowned vocal expert, Richard Miller, author of "The Structure of Singing," and articles in over 120 professional journals.
Debra feels very blessed to have had these extraordinary experiences. Seth said to Debra, "I believe that the Lord sent you to me to teach this method." His technique was later named by Debra Bonner, "Speech Level Singing," which is the foundation of DebraTone. Debra, along with her associates and students, have trained well over one hundred Grammy, Tony, and Opera Award Winners. Debra has performed around the world and has developed her own vocal technique, DebraTone.
Lux Singers is an elite religious choral organization under the direction of Mr Leland Spindler. Lux (sounds like Luke's) consists of 4 different ensembles: Lux Singers, Lux Men's Chorus, Lux Women's Chorus, an Lux Children's Chorus. Each member is dedicated both to the choral arts and to his or her own religious faith and congregation. ‘Harmony Perfected’ is the motto by which the Lux Singers Organization operates, seeking to share the majesty and versatility of the human voice.
Mr Spindler has been directing religious ensembles for nearly 20 years. At a very young age, he began conducting his own congregation’s choir in Eugene, OR. Later, whilst living in southern France, Mr. Spindler began an interfaith choir that toured many of the great religious spaces in the region. Upon his return to the United States, he continued his tradition of bringing fine religious choral music to the congregants of various denominations. Mr. Spindler has a great passion for the religious tradition of choral music and its role throughout history. He is a spitfire conductor who does not accept mediocrity from his choir members, and it shows in his performances.
