     ThE BAY AREA YOuTh SiNGERS
   The Bay Area Youth Singers is a non-profit,
independent choral organization established for the
purpose of promoting music education through
choral singing. Incorporated in 2008, the group
has grown from 22 to 44 singers in just one year.
Regular 6:30 to 7:45 p.m. rehearsals on Tuesday
include vocal technique, lessons in music reading,
and the development of the poise and musicianship
necessary for high quality performances. In addi-
tion to presenting a Christmas and Spring Concert,
the choir sings at various community events. The
choir is open to children in grades 2-8; they may
sing in the apprentice or concert choirs, depending
on music background and skills.

   The Bay Area Youth Singers along with their
parent organization, the Bay Area Chorus, co-
sponsors a summer music camp at University
Baptist Church. The third annual music camp is
scheduled for July 13-17, 2009.

   Information is available at www.bayareayouth

                             Nick Page
             Composer and Song Leader
                        Nick Page’s work with singers, especially young voices, is becoming
                    legendary. He composes music that captures hearts and imagination like no
                    other and his work as guest conductor throughout North America and
                    Europe has brought reactions of awe. He will be a featured clinician at the
                    Texas Music Educator’s Association convention in San Antonio February
                    12-14, 2009. While in San Antonio he will also visit elementary schools,
                    present a workshop for teachers and conduct a power sing with the members
                    of the San Antonio Children’s Chorus, Marguerite McCormack, Director.

                          Beginning in the early eighties when Nick was a conductor of the Chicago
Children’s Choir (now celebrating fifty years), Nick has challenged young singers to reach beyond
all expectations to create pure magnificence, a word of which he is quite fond. The word is heard
repeatedly in Nick Page’s credo, SING AND SHINE ON published by World Music Press as well
as in his book on integrating music into the classroom, MUSIC AS A WAY OF KNOWING.

  Since leaving the Chicago Children’s Choir Nick has been honored to work with youth choirs in
Scotland, Costa Rica, and throughout North America. To name a few: Campbell River Children’s
Chorus in British Columbia, the Indianapolis Children’s Choir, the Nebraska Children’s Choir, the
Syracuse Children’s Choir, the Madison Youth Choirs, the Young People’s Chorus of New York,
the Boston Children’s Chorus, plus many honors choral festivals.

  He has over fifty published choral works in many styles and voicings. His website
(www.nickmusic.com) lists all his publications and contains articles and resource information
on multicultural music.

   Nick holds an undergraduate degree in Music Education from Ithaca College and a Masters in
Education from Lesley University. Nick has had the joy to have worked with or studied with Alice
Parker, Jack Langstaff, Ysaye Maria Barnwell, Joseph Shabalala, Bobby McFerrin, Lorna Cooke
deVaron, Don Campbell, and Richard Greene of “The Bobs.” He now travels the world leading
sings, workshops and concerts for all ages. Nick founded Boston’s Mystic Chorale in 1990 based
on his belief that singing is an act of compassion – when we sing, we make the world a more beau-
tiful place.
