Keith Arnold believes in the power of choral music to lift up and transform those who experience it. As a conductor, Dr. Arnold (D.M.A. University of Colorado at Boulder) was appointed Artistic Director of Sage Singers in November 2021. He founded the Voices of Light Chamber Choir in 2012 to provide audiences with the uplifting power of contemporary choral music, serves as the Minister of Music at Jefferson Unitarian Church in Golden, CO, and led the One World Singers as Music Director from 2004 - 2022. He is a past national President of the Unitarian Universalist Musicians Network, and has conducted choirs on tour in Bulgaria, Britain, Ireland, Canada, and China. He holds a Masters of Music (Choral Conducting and Literature) degree from the University of Illinois and undergraduate degree from Rhodes College.
As a composer, Dr. Arnold 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, Dr. Arnold composed the 2021 “Ruach Song Cycle,” a multi-movement musical reflection of the pandemic written for SATB chorus, brass quintet, and strings. Arnold and Burrows also lead monthly contemplative “Evensong” singing services.
The Sage Singers are honored and thrilled to have Dr. Arnold as our new Artistic Director!
