José Daniel Flores-Caraballo, new director of the Vermont Symphony Orchestra Chorus, and the Artistic and Executive Director of Albany Pro Musica, moved north from Vero Beach, Florida in Fall 2014 where he had served as artistic director, conductor, and founder of the Atlantic Symphonic Chorus and Orchestra, the Atlantic Schola Cantorum, and the Atlantic Children’s Chorale. Flores-Caraballo also served as director of music and organist for the Community Church of Vero Beach, where he directed the 73-member Chancel Choir and all guest instrumental ensembles and orchestras. Flores helped establish Vero Beach as a choral, concert, and cultural destination thanks to his excellence in teaching and performance. Prior to moving to the continental U.S., he was Dean of Academic Affairs at the Conservatory of Music founded by Pablo Casals in San Juan, Puerto Rico. A gifted teacher, Flores exhibits remarkable patience, good humor, collegiality, and aesthetic creativity – a unique combination of talents that empowers players and singers to perform at the highest levels while having fun.
We hope you’ll join us for this great day of singing and sharing of music!
These workshops are free and open to all – invite your friends!
