Adele Clark adjudicated almost 70 choirs and individual singers participating in the Cariboo Festival 2015 vocal and choral classes Monday and Tuesday at St. John Lutheran Church.
Clark’s teaching and performance experience spans more than 25 years.
After obtaining her Bachelor of Music degree at the University of British Columbia she completed her master’s degree with a major in opera performance.
She served as assistant to the director of opera studies at the University of Britich Columbia where she also taught voice.
Her private studio was established in 1991 and is a thriving enterprise.
Many of Clark’s students have gone on to post secondary education in music and professional performing careers.
The constant challenge of staying current in vocal pedagogy and performance practices is very exciting to her.
Enthusiasm and a positive approach keep Clark in demand as an adjudicator, clinician, and workshop teacher across Canada.
With a diversified repertoire from operato to cabaret Clark’s repertoire includes roles as wide-ranging as Nellie Lovett in Sondheim’s Sweeney Todd to the Countess in Le Nozze di Figaro and of course Adele in Die Fledermaus, as well as a large collection of crazy ladies and women of dubious repute.
Directing credits include opera, cabaret and musical theatre for professional and community theatre.
Clark is a longstanding member of the National Association of Teacher’s of Singing, the Voice Foundation (professional level), Music Teachers National Association, the B.C Registered Music Teacher’s Association, and the Canadian Actor’s Equity Union.
