Guest Artist:

We are excited to announce jazz vocalist Halie Loren as this years guest artist. Halie Loren is an international, award-winning jazz singer/songwriter. Raised in Alaska, this Oregon-based artist brings a fresh and original perspective to time-honored musical paths, channeling her innate understanding of connectedness across musical boundaries to forge bonds with diverse audiences in North America, Asia, and Europe. A lover of global cultures and music, her repertoire is a multi-lingual one, including songs in Spanish, French, Portuguese, Italian, Japanese and Korean as well as her native English. She’s released eight albums to-date, garnering several national and international awards as well as significant critical and chart success along the way, with her albums consistently charting at #1 in Billboard/Japan Jazz Charts, iTunes (Canada and Japan) and Amazon Music

Loren began her career as something of a prodigy at age 13, when she won a songwriting contest, gaining national attention. Before she was 19, she did a stint in Nashville, soaking up that city’s ancestry of great American songwriting. She recorded her first album at 20, and from there she was off and running, recording successive albums that garnered awards, Billboard recognition and an international following that has sent her touring around the globe, including stops in Korea, Africa, Japan, Canada and the Caribbean, to name a few locations. Her records regularly make “best of” lists, and her sublime talents as a vocalist are attested to by several albums hitting the #1 slot on Canadian and Japanese jazz charts.

Choristers of the Cathedral of the Madeleine

The choristers assist with the worship life of the Cathedral serving over 9,000 hours every year and performing in the Cathedral’s annual concert series. National and international performance tours are an integral part of every student’s experience at The Madeleine Choir School. Past tours have encompassed performances in London, Paris, Madrid, Rome, Vienna, Prague, and Berlin, including Westminster Cathedral, Notre Dame de Paris and St. Peter’s Basilica.  In addition, the choristers sing regularly with local arts organizations, including the Utah Symphony | Utah Opera, and have been featured in performances with Ballet West, Utah Chamber Artists, The Mormon Tabernacle Choir, Helena Symphony, and the San Francisco Opera.

Lux Singers:

Lux Singers is an elite religious choral organization under the direction of Mr Leland Spindler. Lux (sounds like Luke's) consists of 3 different ensembles: Lux Singers, Lux Men's Chorus, and Lux Women'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.
