Popular choral clinician and composer, Sally K. Albrecht will again lead this exciting one day choral workshop and concert event.
Sally K. Albrecht is a popular choral composer, conductor, and clinician, especially known for her work with choral movement. An annual recipient of the ASCAP Special Music Award since 1987, Ms. Albrecht has more than 550 popular choral publications in print, 75 larger elementary songbooks and musicals, plus 20 instructional choral movement DVDs. She has directed and staged the half-time show singers performing during two Florida Citrus Bowls, and has conducted hundreds of honor choir events, including festivals at Lincoln Center, Carnegie Hall, and The Kennedy Center. For over three decades, she was the Director of School Choral and Classroom Publications for two major educational music publishing companies, most recently for Alfred Music.
A native of Cleveland, Ohio, Ms. Albrecht received a B.A. Degree from Rollins College (FL) with a double major in Music and Theater. From there she moved to the University of Miami (FL), where she received both an M.A. in Drama and an M.M. in Accompanying. She was an accompanist for Fred Waring and has taught in the music departments at Oakland University (MI), Jersey City State College (NJ), and Meredith College (NC). Ms. Albrecht has worked with literally thousands of teachers, presenting sessions at music conventions and choral music workshops in over 40 states, Canada, Singapore, and Australia.
Ms. Albrecht and her husband, composer/arranger Jay Althouse, currently enjoy living in Raleigh, North Carolina. They were thrilled to have their composition I Hear America Singing! performed during the 2009 Presidential Inauguration Ceremonies. In 2015, her Domine Deus was sung by the Archdiocesan Children’s Choir as the Pope arrived at the Cathedral Basilica of Saints Peter and Paul in Philadelphia. In 2016, her composition This Is the Day! was premiered by the Texas Choral Directors Association Elementary Honor Choir. Most recently, I’m Bound for Glory! was premiered under her direction at Carnegie Hall by the WorldStrides OnStage Honors Junior Choir. Ms. Albrecht currently serves as the Foundation President of the Board of Trustees for the Omicron Delta Kappa national leadership honor society, and she is a proud recipient of their Pillar of Leadership award.
