Salt Lake Choral Artists (SLCA) is one of America’s premiere community choirs. The choir focuses on classical, contemporary, and culturally diverse music and enjoys collaborating with other performing groups in the community. SLCA has been critically acclaimed for its innovative concerts and Summer Choral Institute program, and was named Best of State for best choral ensemble 2012-2017. Its mission is to promote the performance of choral music by educating and inspiring choral singers, conductors, composers, vocal soloists, and accompanists at all levels through performance of a wide range of musical genres. Since the appointment in 2004 of Dr. Brady Allred as Artistic Director and Conductor, the choir has grown to include a chamber choir, a children’s choir, a professional-level ensemble, and a women’s choir, and introduced both a men’s choir and a youth choir in 2013. Dr. Allred’s wealth of choral conducting experience, remarkable range of musical talent, and exceptional leadership has brought SLCA to a higher level of artistic excellence and generated new enthusiasm among choir members, serious interest from the media, and the attention of donors who recognize the importance of promoting quality performing arts in the area.

During their 8-day tour of Japan, the Salt Lake Vocal Artists performed in Tokyo, Mastumoto and Nagoya and were the guest choir of the Karuizawa International Choral Festival in Karuizawa, Japan. Text: If music be the food of love, Sing on till I am fill'd with joy; For then my list'ning soul you move To pleasures that can never cloy. Your eyes, your mien, your tongue declare That you are music ev'rywhere. Pleasures invade both eye and ear, So fierce the transports are, they wound, And all my senses feasted are, Tho' yet the treat is only sound, Sure I must perish by your charms, Unless you save me in your arms.
