Want to be an artistic director?
Harrisburg Men’s Chorus today announced the retirement of artistic director David Walker, who has served for eight years. The 2011-2012 season will be his last.
Walker is credited with taking the chorus to new heights under his talented leadership. They have attended 2 GALA (Gay and Lesbian National Choral Association) Festivals in Miami, Florida and San Jose, California with Denver, Colorado in 2012.
David has encouraged collaboration with other musical groups both in Central Pennsylvania and abroad, including the New Jersey Gay Men’s Chorus, the Central Pennsylvania Womyn’s Chorus and the Arcona Reel Band. In the Harrisburg area, David has been instrumental in leading the Voices United concerts for 7 years. His sense of humor, wit and talents will be dearly missed.
