Welcome to the WYC Team, Drew Albert!
The Wescustago Youth Chorale Board is delighted to announce the addition of Drew Albert to our conducting staff. Drew will join us for the 2019-20 season, and will start planning for the year with our other conductors, Renovia Day and Jen Runge, during the late spring and summer.
Drew currently is the music educator at Maranacook Community High School in Readfield, ME. He conducts concert choir, chamber choir, concert band and jazz band, plus works on the theater productions at the school as well. Drew has participated in several District honors festivals, and recently took singers to All-Easterns, and his entire chamber choir to NYC last year. Drew is also the assistant conductor for Una Voce, formerly Vox Nova, based in Bath ME.
The selection committee found Drew to be capable and concise in his conducting audition, and noted that his music philosophies are similar to the current WYC teaching methods. They also found Drew to be passionate about youth, music, repertoire, as well as being open and approachable.
WYC is excited for the future and extends a warm welcome to Drew!
