Keith Arnold believes in the power of choral music to lift up and transform those who experience it. As a conductor, Keith was appointed AD of Sage Singers in November 2021, where he directs the chorus in rehearsal and performance, leads the Music Team, and represents the chorus in national GALA conversations.
Outside Sage Singers, he directs the Voices of Light Chamber Choir, serves as the Minister of Music at Jefferson Unitarian Church in Bolden, CO, and conducted the One World Singers from 2004-2022. He serves on the non-profit board of the Kutandara Marimba Ensemble, a Boulder-based ensemble dedicated to preserving and sharing traditional Zimbabwean marimba and mbira music.
He is past national President of the Association for Unitarian Universalist Music Ministries and has conducted choirs on tour in Bulgaria, Britain, Germany, Ireland, Canada, and China. Keith earned a Doctor of Musical Arts in the History and Performance and Choral Music from the University of Colorado, holds a Masters of Music degree from the University of Illinois, and an undergraduate degree from Rhodes College.
As a composer, Keith wrote the music to a 2016 cantata, "Awakening to Blessing," that was performed in Golden, Co, Denver, Co, St. Louis, Mo, and Princeton, NJ. Along with husband David Burrows, Keith composed the 2021 "Ruach Song Cycle," a multi-movement musical reflection of the pandemic written for SATB chorus, brass quintet, and strings. Keith and David live in Northwest Denver with their beloved dog, Benny.
